At the beginning of this year as I started to think and plan for Knitty Bitties my biggest goal was to create a more cohesive look and style for the products in my shop. I didn’t want to limit the items I created, to say 2 or 3 products, but I did want all of my product look like it went together.
As I brainstormed further with this idea of a cohesive look, I kept going back to the ‘thing’ that I enjoy the most, my best selling product and the compliment I hear the most …
I love creating ‘colorways’ of fabric to create my patchwork. My patchwork camera strap slipcovers have been my best seller since they were first introduced … and … the compliment I get the most is my pairings of color/fabric. It now seemed obvious.
I evaluated my best selling items and re-designed them to incorporate patchwork. I love all of them … I love them all more than any other version which tells me this is working for me and I trust for the shop too.
Introducing the new look of Knitty Bitties::
The list taker and mini wallet feature a patchwork accent, top stitching detail and a natural cotton to offset the color of the designer fabrics.
The iPad/tablet and eReader soft cases continue to feature a colorful gathered patchwork accented with a coordinating fabric on the front and back and a soft minky lining.
In addition to the new look, I’m also launching a few new items in the Knitty Bitties Home line::
The patchwork pillow covers feature a quilted patchwork pieced front, a layer of cotton batting and an interior layer of muslin. The cover has an envelope style closure on the back and rounded corners and all interior seams have been finished with a serger. All covers have been pre-washed/dried to give it that crinkly quilted finish.
The one-of-a-kind hoop art are made from up-cycled fabric scraps. A layer of batting makes the quilting stand out and bits of ric-rac accent the finished piece. The back is completely finished with a decorative piece of scrap book paper.
** I also have a new camera strap slipcover colorway and several new mug rugs & coffee coat/mug rug sets that I will be listing but ran out of time. **
All items will start showing up in the shop late tonight/early Saturday AM. I’d love to hear your feedback/thoughts on the new look and perhaps your favorite product.
