four days plus discounts

16 Apr

The Made by Hand show is only four days away! And, I’m actually feeling pretty good about it. I have some tweaking to do with my display and of course there’s always more sewing to do – but, what else is new!? Here are a couple new things I’ll be selling! They’re my classic lined totes and new sunglasses cases with my own screen printed textiles.

In anticipation of my future screen printing endeavours I’m going to be offering many items at super fun discounted prices starting at the Made by Hand show this coming Saturday from 11-5 at the International Centre. I want to clear a lot of my product so I can start this new chapter of Anna Sophia Designs fresh! Come say “hi” and check out the deals.

did hell freeze over?

11 Apr

No. But, it has  here in Toronto. It’s freezing raining – in April. Poo.

What is as remarkable as hell freezing over is that I’m posting twice in one day! Oh my!

I thought I’d share what I was up to this past weekend as my wonderful husband took charge of looking after the little guy. This gave me the chance to sew, sew, sew. Below you’ll see pictures of sunglasses/eyeglass pouches, dog bandanas and a small army of super bunny loveys! I can’t wait to share them with you at the Made by Hand Show on April 20th! So soon!

long time coming

I just completed my repeat screen printing course yesterday and these textiles are the fruits of my labour. This is just the start people! My brain is bursting with ideas.

I can’t wait to sew what I’ve got right now into totes – I printed onto a super sturdy canvas.

It had been a while since I screen printed anything; it’s a lesson in trial and error that’s for sure! But, the process is so much fun. It’s definitely one of more favourite forms of art and craft.

As I always say “stay tuned for more!”

allow myself to introduce my…self

Welcome! to the newest members of the family – the Super Loveys!
These little guys are little stuffed bunnies with capes! And a pocket! And we can’t forget a tail!

I came up with the idea for the lovey/stuffy because I’ve got a little boy, but didn’t know what he’d like more – a blanket or a soft toy. I had a stuffed puppy named Fifi when I was little and my brother had a blanket. So, my solution to the self imposed conundrum was to create both in one!

And, so, the Super Lovey was born. They’re $25 ea. If you’re interested email me… I’ll be posting them on etsy on Monday when I ask my local postmaster how much it will cost to ship these little guys. ….I’ve also got a cat, dog and teddy in the works. Stay tuned!

i’m so excited to start screen printing

15 Feb

20130215-195434.jpgI made this screen of the frenchies a year and a half ago and am FINALLY using it! I’m so excited to finally start screen printing again. It’s been years!

I’ll be working on more designs and screens over the next few months. I can’t wait to share them as I go.

If you’re interested in buying the frenchie tote, message me on facebook. I’ll be listing it in my etsy shop shortly. I was too excited to take etsy calibre photos – I had to share asap!

bags, bags, bags

27 Jan

Here are some bags I’ve been working on. Some Signature heart tote bags, I’m going to make a few more. And, a diaper bag I made about a month ago. I love the exterior, but, I’ve got to fiddle around with the interior a bit. I’ve included a key fob and stroller clips, and there’s a gazillion pockets inside …. maybe too many?

barbapapa love

25 Jan

I made my first etsy sale this week! Yay!

And, it happend to be a little blue drawstring backpack for kids with a Barbapapa front pocket. Sale number two for this week was an adult size Barbapapa tote.

I love the fabric too! I’m going to make some pants for my little boy out of it.

If anyone else is interested in the Barbapapa, I’ve got a limited amount of fabric left, so when it’s all gone, that’s it! I’m going to make a couple of totes and drawstring backpacks, maybe a cushion. Does anyone have any other ideas for the fabric?
