NEW TALENT

Design: Erica Domsek

When it comes to designing fashion accessories and finding inspiration, it is not always about the sewing machine. Sharpie, the marker people, have had a long history with celebrities and autograph seekers, but this year it’s all about the fans and the inspiring ways they are using their product, according to Sally Grimes, global vice president of marketing for Sharpie ™ . “This is about real people with an authentic passion for our brand – people who started something with Sharpie and, as a result, are getting a jump-start on making their own dreams a reality.”

DIY expert, author and creator of P.S. – I Made This, Erica Domesek’s creations are inspired by some of the biggest names in fashion. She has been featured in top entertainment and fashion media, and both her website and her book feature several Sharpie ™ DIY projects. In her video, Erica breathes new life into a standard-issue pencil case using new Stained by Sharpie™ fabric markers to create a chic purse.

There is a story behind everything and telling a story and putting your own personal stamp on it, to customize something or personalize something, I think that is one of the cool things about making your own stuff.” Well said, Erica!

    That marker-drawn purse is a great idea. I forgot that I used to use Sharpies to draw on my canvas shoes and t-shirts. The major problem was “bleeding” when washing. Special Sharpies for fabric…I like it. The “PS. I Made This” site has some pretty impressive ideas as well. Although I’m not a fan of glue guns which she uses often. It’s speed over quality though and sometimes, flawless finishes deter me from even starting a project, so it’s a worthwhile trade off for some quick projects.
