Some fabric with a retro feel...

I received these fabric in the mail today and I am a little excited!!!
I have a few projects for these prints...the first and second are for my little nephew. I am making him some cool little retro style shorts ...his Mum loves Dr Suess and especially Thing One and Thing Two...
The Space Invader's print will be appliqued on a tee and I might have some little matching pants too...

Some "kiss clasp" purses for summer....

Some purses that I have been making....

This one in a beautiful Japanese fabric....I do like this print and the texture of the fabric...




This one from some recycled fabric......I love the silhouette style print....





Oh! This little coin purse is made from recycled denim and appliqued with a hand printed design of a little bird...it has a flexi style opening...I think it is just cute...

It's been a while!

I haven't blogged for a while but consistent none the less for the few and far between posts I make.
I have put Wednesday's aside for my creative days where whim and fancy take over from the usual daily chores.

So today I decided I would take a stroll through my boxes of scraps and little bits that get discarded from projects and creations.

Here is what I have been playing with today (not completed yet) and some photos from the past couple of months..

Children's Creations..

When my daughters friends come to play they really love getting into my fabric scrap tub and creating all manner of things.
These are three pieces they created. They did it all except the machine sewing, which I offered to do for them. The pillows have a different face on each side.


I think they are cute ...don't you agree!!!

Some Childrens Clothing from Ali Bird

A few designs from Ali Bird currently in stock. The Vintage Style Deer print is a picture from my hand drawn collection, there is a bunny also, but I will save that one for Easter!. My favourite is the second from the bottom - the oriental style fabric has beautiful rich colours and is  gorgeous.
P.S If I don't have these listed on the website, feel free to contact me as some of these are one of a kind!

Just a taste of some new prints...

I felt really good this week finally being able to print some of my designs. I complete all of the printing by hand which I believe adds a sense of satisfaction to each project. The prints haven't been totally finished yet...you will have to wait for that...

Fun Keyrings

My daughters picked out these characters at a local op shop. I love their quirkiness and have turned them into keyrings. My favourite - definately "Nanna".
