I chose my 'Helen' design which is a hobo bag that I felt would perfectly complement the fabric. 'Helen' was made and I posted a photo on facebook, the post was shared and the bag was sold along with a custom order!
I decided that a 'Jo' bag would be next to be made up this fabric, I was very pleased with the result; I listed it on my website and posted a photo on facebook again... and a few hours later the bag sold! I was stunned... had I stumbled onto something?
When I was in town the following day I picked up some more fabric that I thought might fit the bill (though I still have a fair bit of the original fabric left).
The new fabric
I made another 'Jo' in one of the new fabrics and listed it yesterday. It hasn't sold yet but I am still more than pleased with the result and I'm looking forward to making many more bags in these gorgeous fabrics, and I'm really excited about creating my first collection.
