Time for A Little Something…


“Two blog posts in two days! Have you nothing better to do Kim?” Well actually yes, I’ve been busy making up my new digitally printed fabric into these rather nice purse/bags and I thought I’d better do a bit of self promotion. Everybody’s at it you know.

I’m GIVING AWAY one of these to celebrate the first snowdrops and the end of January! The fabric is an “eco fabric” made from re-cycled plastic bottles, lined with up-cycled cotton shirt fabric and the leather wrist strap uses soft leather off- cuts from a bookbinding studio. So, you can carry these bags without worrying that you might be making the planet melt and the polar bears will thank you for that.

Its been snowing here this morning and I need to go to the shed for more logs now so all you have to do if you want to win one of these is leave a comment here before February 1st. If you Re-Tweet this post on Twitter or share the link on Facebook you can have an extra entry.

  1. Lovely design. I will share this on twitter and facebook for you.

    How do you print onto fabric? Do you need a special printer/press?

    • Thanks Rachel. The fabric was printed by a company that asked me to put a link on here for them (payment for advertising really- see link for Canvas Art Printing).They have a variety of fabrics. Lots of places offer digital printing though and you can use most fabrics so long as it has been coated with a special chemical solution to make it colourfast.
