Interactive microbit Handbag By Georgia McKenna

This incredibly stylish interactive microbit handbag was designed and made by Georgia McKenna. Georgia, a former Fashion Design student at NTU, combined several making disciplines to bring her design to life. She also kindly sent us some photographs for us to share with you.

Kitronik's Kevin Spurr and Ben Gray recently attended a series of NTUMakersClub workshops were they ran microbit sessions. They also provided support to the students with advice on their coursework prototypes.

This project serves to demonstrate how different disciplines can come together in a single design. Also, I suspect that woodturning lathes are rarely used to create wearables. The design also featured electronics, textiles and a microbit.
