I've finished making the first batch of Beetle Friends purses, I am so happy with this fabric! I was inspired by the gorgeous striped book cover in this photo on decor8, and wanted to design something bright, colourful & happy.
I originally had in mind a simple floral design to go between the stripes, but I couldn't get the little beetles, which I had originally drawn in my sketchbook about a year ago, out of my head. So, Beetle Friends came to life!!!
You can purchase Beetle Life coinpurses & pencilcases:
The purses are all lined in a gorgeous recycled yellow & white flannel cotton, nice & soft.
The pencilcases are a great idea for a back-to-school or starting-school gift for any little people (or big people!) They're great for makeup or sunglasses too!
