Do you all know the young and sassy shop Fred Flare? What a fun website. This time of year they have a contest followed by a “big reveal” of their top pics for the best indie designers. It’s called The Next Big Thing. This is the second year I’ve submitted a design. Last year’s entry wasn’t chosen and neither was my entry this year. Hmm, guess they weren’t feelin’ the love for my caterpillar eyeglass case!
Yeah, I’m a little bummed. It would have been great to get a big order, have my stuff sold on that super cute website, get some PR, share the spotlight with some crafty superstars…
But, rather than letting a good idea (well, I liked it anyway) go to waste, I decided to make you all some lemonade out of my lemon!
If you’re interested, next week I will whip together a little tutorial on this so you can make your own. Meanwhile, I’ll maintain my little Fred Flare crush from afar and try again next year! :)
