Drawing + Color + Repeat = Cotton Fabric

While I was stuck at home during the crazy snowstorm last month, I got an early start one one of my 2009 ideas. Introducing, exclusive Laura Bee Designs fabric...

Inspired by ancient Chinese motifs, I designed this print using contemporary colors and a simple repeat. I had great fun tinkering around in Freehand changing the colors and repeats to learn how to create a compelling pattern. I'm just getting started and still have lots to learn.

I was so excited to receive my first yard in the mail last week, I had to sew up a little zipper case right away. I'll be creating new designs over the next month or so. These fabrics will available for custom bag design only, both in the shop and on our website. Have color or design suggestions? Send 'em my way.
