This year I’ve been (slowly) designing the first StephieAnn tote bag! I don’t usually share product developments when I’m in the initial stage but would love your feedback. The bag will probably be available in 2023 – or just before Christmas if I’m lucky! I’ve experimented a lot and it’s taking a few samples to get right.
The outside will be plain fabric with a printed lining making the bag reversible. I’ll embroider personalised messaged and initials on the plain side
The bag still requires some development, I’m not 100% happy. I’m thinking matching pink and blue zips or metallic ones would be better and a small size decrease to ensure the bag holds its shape. The pink colour has come out dodgy! The print out shows what I see on my screen but dye pigment takes to the fabric differently. The light grey shown in the photo has come out as bright pink and I’ll need to change the logo colours or background to make them stand out. So…hmmm…but getting there!
Sometimes when I’m designing a product I create a ‘visualization’ or photoshop ‘mock up’ of what I’m aiming for.
What do you think? I’d LOVE your feedback, please let me know using the contact box below.
“The makeup bag looked exactly as the one in the picture and as described. Good quality too.”
