Do it yourself fun

I have been searching the internet for programs similar, that on a much cheaper scale, you can design your own clothing and shoes. I’ve just spent the night playing around on three different websites, and here is the result.
The shirt above I designed using UnitedStyles. Their program allows a great deal of versatility and creativity and is definitely perfect for budding designers. It is very easy to use, has a wide selection of sizes and allows you to browse through bloggers OOTD posts for inspiration. It is definitely worth playing with, because if you like it, you can have it sent straight to your door.
Shoes of Prey was the first website I visited and I was shocked by how simple it was to design a pair of shoes. I must say, I was a tad overwhelmed by the range of patterns and prints and fabrics and heights and styles. Their website is incredibly easy to use and allows so much flexibility that it is perfect for anyone and for every occasion. 
I loved designing a bag on The Print Bar. While flexibility is not of the essence, you probably don’t even need it. You can choose to design a bag or a t-shirt to fit anyone in a variety of styles and upload your own text and image and customise it from there. I quite like my little creation!

  3. I love playing around with design, but this program looks way more sophisticated than most of the free stuff out there. Great blog by the way!
