Now this week it may look like I have skimmed on giving you some normal content and just resulted in doing some shameless self promotion. I can assure you in this case that the above is most defiantly not..not true.
As another mission to keep myself busy during long break off I thought I thought what better than as start a business (as you do). After putting together some hand drawn designs which I didn’t really have many intentions for, I got the chance to get back into the workshops and get some lovely screen prints done.
After creating a lot of samples at first which I didn’t really have any intention to do anything with, it crossed my mind that I could make something out of these. It was at this point that the makeup bag brain wave happened.
I thought makeup bags were a great place to start in that there quite simple and easy to make, cheap to create and with the right fabrics put together can look really beautiful and be really functional.
Now most of my work which you may know If you have had a look at my portfolio (link here https://www.flickr.com/photos/129012653@N05/albums) that I have a preference to work with blues and red however with this collection to mix it up a bit I wanted to introduce some other colours to my prints resulting in a collection with pink, orange and yellow in aswell.
The first collection which I have avalible to buy consists of a beautiful collection of one off prints that are designed, hand screen printed and sewn together by myself.
The second collection is created out of a selection of a lovely collection of fabrics I have collected and combined together in a range of sizes and designs. I wanted to celebrate some the beautiful fabrics which are available on the market already and which have given me inspiration for some of my designs so have created this collection to showcase these.
All of these bags are available to purchase on Etsy and are very reasonably priced between £8 and £14. There all one off so when they are gone there gone! would love it if you could take a look. Also take a look at our Facebook page for all the lasted updates and info.
Some of my favourites from the collection:
