asking for trouble

Show and Tell #2

It’s always really exciting when someone emails me photos of stuff they’ve made with my fabric, or bought from my licensees. Tessa of House of Wonderland sent me these first two photos, of bags and keyrings made with my Spoonflower fabrics.The bags can be custom ordered and I hope she lists those keyrings soon as they are super cute!

I know from my own laptop case how fantastic the Rickshaw cases from Zazzle are but it’s still cool to see an iPad case in reality. This one belongs to my mum’s friend Iris – she’s customised it to have red piping and lining which looks great.

Got any photos to share? Please send them along. And if you’re one of the people who have bought my duvet covers, that goes double!
