from sketch to screen...


We've had a super busy day creating new designs for our fabric range. We generally start off sketching out ideas on paper, before drawing them onto a computer tablet. Then the fun begins! We throw in all sorts of colours to get a feel for what the fabrics might look like and edit the designs multiple times to perfect the flow and fix all the little imperfections. We then fiddle around with repeats (not our favourite part!) and work out the sizing before sending it off to have samples printed.

Here's one of our rough doodles done over a cup of coffee...


And here is the first computer draft with a few colours added so we can see whether it is going to work... Lots still to do!!


We are very pleased to be expanding our fabric range and with some more exciting happenings on the horizon, it is going to be a bit of a crazy month. We can't wait!
