A few weeks ago I ordered my first item from Society 6…a pink tote bag that simply says Knitting Projects on it.
It’s from my shop. I only have a few designs up as they need so many file sizes that it takes me ages to upload new designs, compared to RedBubble which I find to be a far easier uploading process!
I thought I’d see what their tote bags were like as I’m always on the lookout for a new tote! Since most of mine at the moment are either holding sewing materials like wadding or stuffing or they have current knitting projects in, I thought I it would be a good idea to try something new.
Here is the link to the design if you want to have a look yourself:
This is a screenshot of the design from a while back (I think they have 20% off at the moment instead of 40%…they have regular sales on different products which I like!).
As you can see, it’s a very simple design!
And below are some terrible photos by me…
And the quality?
It’s quite stiff and sturdy. There’s just one layer (that I can see) of fabric which looks and feels like a canvas type fabric. The handles are black and just the right length.
The colours turned out pretty true to the file I uploaded. I’m always slightly worried that the colours on my computer screen will look different on the actual product…but this is pretty true to the design.
On the whole I’m quite pleased with it!
On any fabric print on demand item which has your design printed on it, like pouches and bags, there is always going to be a point where you say the design could be printed a bit sharper, but I think it’s just part of the printing process.
I have the same trouble with RedBubble. I ordered a tote from RedBubble a few months ago with a green design on and the colours turned out perfectly, but could have been just a bit sharper.
There’s always a give and take with print on demand!
I have my knitted jumper that I’m working on in the bag at the moment…the crochet blanket has been relegated to a finished object bag in my wardrobe.
I’m looking at adding some more craft-based designs to both my RedBubble and Society 6 stores, so if you have any ideas for sewing, knitting, crochet etc. designs, then let me know!
