Around Town

September 6, 2013

We made a visit to The Container Store this weekend, and I was very happy to see my gift wrap for sale. Here are some snapshots. You can buy these items at their stores or online (links below).

My four-year old seemed to catch my excitement and one by one went through the aisle asking, “Is this Ana Davis? How ’bout this?? Is this one yours???”” Sorry, kiddo, they’re not all my designs… but thanks for the optimism. :)

Post-it® Designer Notes!

April 29, 2013

I am more-than-happy to announce the release of my two collections of Post-it® Designer Notes! Here they are:AnaDavisPostItDesignerNotes

Fun, right!?! :)

I am really excited that these two groups of artwork were selected by the amazing team over at Post-it®. These collections represent both sides of my art brain: One side loves the details of vintage things and the bright, bold colors of Indian textiles; The other side craves clean, modern design and loves Scandinavian influences. I find these themes repeated in surprising ways throughout my portfolio. I’m thrilled that the Post-it® team saw something they liked in both of these aesthetics.

The group of art the Post-it® team pulled together follows this trend of varied aesthetics, and they have put together a line of products with contributions from a huge array of talented artists: Sorry You’re Happy, Iza PearlYinfan Huang, Khristian A. Howell, Sisters Gulassa–so many great designers, I can’t list all of them, so check out the new Post-it® Signature Series website and see what I mean!!!

Getting Ready for Picnic Season

April 19, 2013

Even though we Chicagoans have experienced some serious rain, temperature changes, and flooding this week, I am optimistic that picnic season will, in fact, be here soon. To celebrate, I have sewed wine totes for friends and family.

These wine totes use many different pattern combinations from my first two fabric collections, Spring Promise and Animal Parade. From left to right:

1. Body: Ava in turquoise  Handles: Chainlink in green  Liner (not shown): Spring Floral in turquoise.

2. Body: Tulip in orange  Handles: Spring Floral in orange Liner (not shown): Country Garden in yellow.

3. Body: Tapestry in purple  Handles: Tulip in lavender  Liner (not shown): Loki in pink.

4. Body: Loki in gold  Handles: Buds in turquoise  Liner (shown below): Tapestry in green.

5. Body: Flutter in green Handles: Star Floral in brown Liner (not shown): Flower Paisley in pink.



I love this tote pattern. It is by Atkinson Designs and I found it at Island Quilter, a wonderful quilt shop on Vashon Island, WA.

The pattern comes with a lunch tote option, so I bought insulated liner so I can make that as well. Each version of the pattern has different pockets. The wine tote has exterior pockets on the side, and is divided inside so that your two wine bottles don’t clank together too much. So cute!!!
