Raise your Handbag!

14 Oct 2016

Have you ever read a snide, bumptious or haughty message and wished you could reply with a raised handbag and a high-pitched mocking call of “ooOOooh!”?

First there was the site ooOO.eu, and now you can retort in iMessage with this handy sticker pack! Choose from twenty one styles of bag: from traditional to designer as well as more esoteric types (such as a cyclists’ musette). Press and hold to lift off and layer stickers – add an “ooOOH!” speech balloon on top or combine bags for more power! For the best effect, place on top of a selfie!

Ever since Apple announced sticker functionality for Messages I’ve wanted to have a go at making a small pack. I experimented with some different illustration styles, and in the end I preferred the looser, hand drawn approach, created in Adobe Draw on the iPad Pro & Pencil.

The process of combining them in xCode was straightforward, but thereafter, getting the app onto iTunes Connect was rather painful. A steep learning curve for someone like me, but I got there in the end.

Handbags! is a free sticker pack, now available from Sticker Store.
