CCS, part 3 – new projects
Quite some time ago now, we launched our first and second waves of colour-cut-and-sew cushion projects. They were very popular, but as we haven’t brought out new versions with the new designs, their popularity has ebbed, as you would expect, so we are refreshing the range for this year’s gift-giving season.
I decided to match up my most popular bird picture, my kereru, with one of my newest designs, kawakawa, for the first design.
I mocked the concept up roughly for George. The first image shows a “feature” on one side, with blue lines representing the handles, then showed how the design would peep through onto the other side, and how the handles (green scribble) would hang down.
It took a bit of fiddling, and a few mock-ups, but we eventually found a layout, which duly arrived, printed on Spoonflower’s linen cotton canvas.
The delightful Akemi of Blueberry Puppin made up an example bag, so that people can understand how the pattern can be turned into a bag.
âWe lined it with the same kakakawa design, but in colour, and on grey plaid. Click on the fabric image to order from Spoonflower.
