Kindred Spirits

My collection will have a "knitting" theme.  It will be called "Kindred Spirits" because I love knitting (and many other crafts) and Anne of Green Gables is one of my favorite books.  When fellow knitters meet they become kindred spirits.

Collection Desciption

"Do you knit?" If you love knitting, you love this question. When fellow knitters meet they become kindred spirits. Knitting is often not just a craft, for some it is a lifestyle. This collection of knitting themed patterns is for those kindred spirits.

Now for the mock ups:

When I was working on this collection I pictured the fabric on bags for in-progress knitting projects and notebooks, etc, not so much for clothing. I searched for mockup templates of this type but was pretty unsuccessfull. I think I may have to make my own. If anyone has any ideas, please feel free to share!!

For now, I used the template that Bonnie provided us.

So now I am off to the printers to start working on the portfolio...

Another attempt at a mockup:

I created some notebooks from my patterns:

And I order some fabric from spoon flower and made this drawstring bag:

I also made a portfolio but I am not very happy with it.  If I were ever going to show anyone I would remake it.  Here are two pages:
