Using Fabric To Enhance Your Designs

I love color! My bags all reflect bold, colorful fabrics which appeal to those who dare to be different from the masses." Simplicity with a touch of whimsy" is what simplyvdesigns is all about. I like to highlight certain aspects of the particular fabric used for my bags to make them appear 2 dimensional. Utilizing various shapes or patterns within the fabric accent each and every bag design. My bags are not for the shy individual who shuns the spotlight. Simplyvdesigns makes unique women's/girl's bags of all sorts. Check out my shops on and madeitmyself-if you dare.......Victoria
