Time for a new debut! That secret project I've been working on that nobody was able to guess is finally ready to be shared.
Several months ago I was contacted by a company that is specializing in gift items. They wanted to put my designs on a range of products. After several phone calls, emails and a sit down (ha ha), I signed on the dotted line. And now here we are, the first three products are getting ready to go into final production which means they will be available in a month-ish.
They traveled to our home on Saturday with some samples to have a fun photo shoot. We sat on the floor for hours looking at the different items, trying to pick out the finals to take to production. (As Kathy Miller can attest, I am NOT a good cutter-outer. Keep it all is my motto. Things like production costs etc.. are not my top priority. sheesh.) Anyhow-there will be 3 products to begin-Baskets and Basket liners, Fabric Covered Gift Boxes and Fabric Covered Storage Boxes. We got the finals for the Basket liners and Gift boxes picked out but could NOT decide on the finals for the Storage Boxes. Here's where you come in. Want to help? If you would be so kind as to lend your opionion as to which of these 5 prints you would like to see on Storage Boxes, we would be oh so happy. We'll most likely keep the top 3 voted on. There will be 3 in green and blue as well-we just couldn't decide on the pinks!
So for your highly valued opionion, you will be entered into a drawing to win a complete set of my patterns, 4 fat quarters in your choice any of my fabrics, a cupcake pincushion kit and a bag of fun crochet trims. Retail value of $125. We'll give away three prizes, so spread the word! You can just let us know what you think of them too if you are as completely confused as we are. :)
The contestants are:
Henna Garden - Red
Retro Dot - Red
Vintage Dot - Blush
Dahlia - Aqua
Medallion - Bloom Pink
Here are the winners of the green and blue color group:
And I suppose the good thing is that whichever ones don't make it onto the boxes, they will all make it onto the Basket liner and Gift boxes.
These gift boxes are just too too fun. You know the garment boxes you would get at a department store? These are the same idea, but the tops are covered in decorator weight fabric! They each come with a tag, ribbon and tissue paper. Right around the same cost as a gift bag too. Oh the embellishing you can do with these!
All right-that's all for now! Remember, the ones we need your top 3 pick out of are in the top picture!
