My favorite part is that they are so much more personal since the outside fabric is handprinted by me. This also means that no item is ever the same since the printing is done free-handedly. We also kept the eco-friendliness in mind with re-purposed metal zippers and a middle layer that protects your belongings, and this layer is made from recycled plastic bottles!
This hand-printing has been in the works for a long time; I actually started experimenting with fabric paint over two years ago. I'm glad I finally took the plunge and decided to make some items for the shoppe!
It has been a long battle with which designs to print, which colors to use, which items to add these designs to...oh, the many decisions I've been faced with!!
I decided to start small and go with the mini-pouches, and let me tell 'ya: These mini-pouches just got much more darling! ;]
Polka dots never go out of style...
... and the random brushstrokes are pretty rad too! Wouldn't 'ya say?
I love the pops of color, and I've also had a thing for gold lately...don't ask me how or why this love for gold came about; I'm still trying to figure that one out. ;]
These pouches are great to use as a small wallet! They're also great when going for a workout; you can fit your phone, gym card, headphones, keys and lip balm. Maybe you just need a pouch that will fit your essentials when running a quick errand? These mini-pouches are just about perfect for that!
I have plenty more designs in the works, so don't think this is the end of handprinted designs. ;]
Tell me, would you want to see more handprinted designs? I would love your input!
