Is this of any interest?
Here is an example of a tote bag from my shop
I photograph my work: crochet, crazy patchwork and paintings and they are made to order in the USA as high quality Tote Bags, Cushions (Throw Pillows) and other items, all in various sizes.
I get 14% of the sale price for each item.
If anyone knows of a similar company in the UK, please let me know.
I am very pleased with what I have bought from Society6 and never had to pay any duty on them here in the UK.
Have a browse there are lots more things to see here.
It is a while since I have done any machine embroidery, but getting the machine out to help Miss E with her bag enterprise has rekindled the passion.
Here is a cushion I made a couple of years ago
It took quite a few experiments to get the ‘pineapple’ effect.
Itching to do more now.
I have tried to hold back until a few things are sorted out before sharing a new online shop with you all – but it’s no good, I just can’t wait any more!
Society6 is an online shop based in America. Alisa Burke shared her Society6 items on her fabulous blog, so I had a go at uploading photos of some of my work (above is some of my machine embroidery printed onto a shoulder bag), and I LOVE it!!!
The look of the Tote Bags and the Cushions (Throw Pillows) make me squeeeeeak with joy!
I have ordered a Tote Bag for myself, to check out the quality and to see how much I will have to pay on top of the postage once it gets to this country. I was going to wait for the bag to arrive before blogging about it but it’s hopeless, I just can not wait!
The fabric is printed with a high definition photograph and I am really interested to see if they look as great in reality as they do online.
I have searched in vain for a UK or European site which does the same thing – the prices and postage are reasonable on the US site I think – just waiting to see what charges are made once in the UK.
Loving the idea of having a crocheted cushion sitting next to it’s photographed counterpart, and maybe a clock to match in the kitchen – or is that going too far?
Could always go for a slightly different pattern in the same colour way
Having lots of fun thinking about different combos. . . .
and different sizes and scale, and then there are the rugs
and the mugs
I’ve got masses of ideas prancing around in my mind for more and more things I want to photograph. PLUS ideas of things I want to make in order to photograph them and see them turned into bags and cushions .. so please pop into the shop and have a look around – I’d love to know what you like best – more to come very soon.
