Beachy Prints

Yesterday was a day for playing with prints. I love screen-printing in layers and here are the results.







The deck chair and beach umbrella that I asked Eleni, aka Curlyhead Design, to draw for our new range of beach-inspired "Summer Days" totes. I haven't finished sewing the bags yet but will do so tonight in time for the Young Designers Market tomorrow. They are made of a sturdy organic cotton canvas and are washable.

It was Eleni's idea to design the retro bathers print. I couldn't decide between black or red so have done a few of each. Which do you prefer?


And with my current fish obsession, I had to print them over the stripes too. I am thinking summer deck cushions.

For you clever crafty types, I'm off to pack some fabric packs. If you're in Brisbane, I hope to see you tomorrow at Southbank!

Funky fresh designs! I love those bathers - love both of them. The red is beautifully vibrant, but I like how the black is solid against the background.

Hope you had a good one at YDM on Sunday.

Thea, I'm loving your fishies - and now that I own an apron of them, just can't get enough!

Red, Red! It brings out the beige...I saw the black the night before last and it is more wearable everyday.
LOVING the new look blog by the way Thea. When are we having our photoshoot? Georgi X
