The Evolution of a Granny Bag


It all began with a hand sketched drawing.....


....which became a design way back in November last year.


It was digitally printed as a lovely linen cotton blend fabric sample in December (right here in Australia), and has been longingly fondled and gazed at ever since.


It's finally been transformed into a handbag, just the perfect size for me and all of my bits and bobs.

I'm hoping to be able to share the fabric printing news very shortly, but in the meantime, I have more samples on the way, and I'll hopefully have some granny square fabric available very soon!

Wow! How neat to see your ideas come to life in something you can touch and hold. The print and colors are fantastic (and I'm not a color kind of girl...boring that way I suppose). They really do come together beautifully

Just want to say I love your fabric designs - absolutely fantastic. Would love to find out where you got your fabric printed in australia as I wouldn't mind giving it a try myself but thought spoonflower was the only option.

Hi Redraspberry, a friend is currently setting up a digital fabric printing business right here in Melbourne. As soon as she's ready to start business, I'll be blogging all the details!
