happy monday friends!
I hope your weekend was lovely - yesterday was filled with sunshine and folks were wandering the streets without a jacket - oh weather - always playing tricks on me.
I have so much to tell you and such little time - so today I have two posts to tell you about, firstly a new bag - by chance I found a small quantity of this beautiful sailcloth fabric and knew immediately it would make a wonderful bag - because the bag has a coating on it to make it waterproof I couldn't print on it - which is fine - I just thought I would add a few little details like the gusset and the top edge - I really like how nice it looks without the top stitching and the little grommets. please check it out in the shop - there's not going to be a lot made since I only have a small roll of the fabric.
secondly, some of my stationary work is featured in this month's designlines - and to celebrate I made a little set of screen printed tags - I only made a limited amount - so get them while you can. I changed the colours of the porcupine and the hare - they both use to be green and I think these colours really defines john's line drawings. I'm off to spend the day with a new intern (this week only I have three interns, plus of course my new assistant kristen).
enjoy your monday - today is going to be a busy one - will tell you why later! xxa

  12. Great looking bag Arrouna, as someone just said, the dark colour is very nice.

    Sounds like you're shop/studio is quite busy!

    Have you done any dyeing lately?


  13. Would this be a totally impractical diaper bag? I'm going to be a new mom and want something that my husband and I can both use. I love this bag but don't know if I should get something with pockets instead...

  14. hi sally mae
    the fabric would be great as a diaper bag
    email me - I can talk to you about doing one with pockets

  15. hey brian
    yes - will be doing some soon
    for my new market totes

    I miss hanging out with you
    we should do a dye party soon

  16. Hi Arounna,
    I'm not sure if it's intentional, but your etsy listing for the sailcloth bag says it ships from Japan??
