Remember way back when...

Oh my gosh. Do you remember yeeeears ago, I submitted some designs to a Naked & Angry pattern competition and won? It's kind of like Threadless, but for products other than tees. Only my most loyal of blog readers would remember this - it was back in 2006!

Anyway, this morning I find an email in my inbox telling me that my pattern (Endless Trees) has finally found it's way onto one of their handbags, for sale in their shop:

It's pretty full on I know, but I'm hoping the pattern will look a bit less intense in person. They gave me a voucher to buy it for myself, so we'll see it in person soon :)

A good time for free stuff, I reckon.

Awesome! The colours work really well. I know what you mean by it seeming full on though but I'm sure it will end up being a nice statement piece to your outfit. ;)

I think it looks great fun ... not too busy at all, just right for a handbag ;)

Hi Lara, i actually found you only by the Naked&Angry link from threadless, even though I'm a Melbourne girl myself.
Congratulations, your work is fantastic!

I have no idea how I wandered into your site but have just read through the whole thing and now I feel very excited for you that your oober cool pattern from '06 was put on that bag! I have found your site really inspiring how you wanted to make patterns and you did--you are always very very good at it. So glad I was able to peruse your site today.
