Katie Carter of Paper from Heaven created a small product line using one of the fabrics I designed for my Spoonflower shop! The fabric she picked is a personal fav and it’s fun to see the wonderful products she made with it.  She designed an essential oil case, crayon roll, pencil case and cosmtic bag (I ordered the cosmetic bag) to purchase one of these items vistit her Etsy store. You can also find her on Facebook and Instagram.

Halloween Wine Bag

One of the things I love about being a in-house designer/illustrator is the variety of styles and projects I get to work on. This is a wine bag I illustrated that is being sold at Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores.

Sew Easy Plush Pals

Mayes_CBPlush

Above are some make- your-own plush kits I designed for Colorbök. Each kit comes with a plush that kids can sew, stuff and dress. They are easy for kids to sew because each animal has pre-punched holes in the back. Kids only have to sew 7 quick stitches. I designed a total of 10 kits for this line. Five of them are being sold at Joann’s starting this month.

Below are my original sketches for the koala plush. I made similar drawings for all 10 of these kits. It was a challenge to work within my budget and still reach my goal of making them cute, colorful and fun. For the mock-ups, I created PhotoShop versions of all the plush to put on the packaging. It was so fun to receive the real samples and to see my work come to life. Mayes_PlushProcess

 

Over the past 6 months I’ve designed over 25 plush kits for colorbök.  I can’t wait to post them all, but I have to wait until they are in stores.

If was a really fun project to work on because it was so open ended. The only rule was that I had to use purple in the color palette.
