After the exciting news that Disaster Designs were shortlisted in 7 categories for Gift of the Year we were even more thrilled to discover that we’ve gone on to win for 2 of our ranges. I’m so happy that one of them was my Hello Sailor collection and the other was for our Moomins amazingly cute bag range. The Gift of the Year competition is run by the Giftware Association to reward products of excellence in the giftware industry.
My Hello Sailor range has a nautical and tattoo-style influence with pretty floral detailing. I also managed to include some of my doodles on it by creating a cute little anchor and bird pattern for it.
The Moomins comic range is based around one of the Moomin comic book covers. It’s so cute and I especially love the embroidered rain and cute Moomintroll holding an umbrella on the back of everything.

We have recently exhibited at the Spring Fair in Birmingham where we launched all our new ranges. One of these was a range I designed called ‘Hello Sailor’ and is nautical and tattoo inspired. I also developed a doodled pattern for it. Everything will be in the shops in May but here is a quick look at a few items and the pattern.
My Hello Sailor range is now available to buy on my online shop Little Moose.
