Flip flops for summer

Last month I launched my latest design and it’s all because of a pair of flip flops. These flip flops in fact

These are my daughter’s flip flops and while we were on holiday last year I drew them and added other flip flops.

This year I worked them into a design on the computer and now have flip flop fabric and am making it into lots of items. Its different to my other fabrics – and not a flower in sight – but it does have similar strong colours. I made a complementary fabric for linings and after a mistake in the size of my image now have flip flops in two different sizes. The larger size is good for bags.

A trio of pouches which are perfect for pens, glasses or even sanitary items.

A swim/ PE bag and a tote bag made from the larger flop flop print

The make-up bags have beads added to the zip pull and I’ve printed the image into the price tag

And finally (enough of flip flops?) A6 plain notebooks and for these I made a dark blue design. I am soon going to add two more colours to range.

So there we have it. The new range to get you into the mood for summer!

Printing fun

The handprinting continues with a bit of combining of the linocut print and the screenprint. I’ve done this in two different ¬†colourways and will be adding more.

To add to the handprinted items are some tote bags (screenprinted) with pretty linings (shop bought), complete with an inner zip pocket. I took one of these on holiday and found it so useful!

Finally, I’ve been having fun with pretty fabrics to make girl’s hair accessories (headband, bow and elastics) and a summer dress for my daughter.IMG_1500240954689Studio_20170628_182551

Now that the summer holidays are coming to an end it back to thinking about markets and get stock ready for Christmas! It always seems a long way off but comes around too quickly!
