Little Houses

Previously I have done a series of pictures
called "Little Houses".
I decided to utilise this concept and 
create some little hanging houses.
Made with felt, beads,embroidery and
hand stitching these were a breath of
fresh air for me and look lovely hung
on doors, windows or any special
spot in a child's bedroom.

Green Owl

This is a handprinted design by Ali on an organic cotton t-shirt. A very cool, unisex design, the owl has "music note" appliqued fabric eyes. We all have the music within......

I made this cute bubble skirt from black satin and have attached a bow on the front
left side..I have matched it with my Harajuku Girl tshirt and some long socks...

Some more Owls!

I have been busy making some more little feathered friends. I decided on a red, black, white and pink colour theme. I also thought little ribbons would look nice with the wooden beads and represent leaves nicely.

Red !

I have been into red lately and this is one of my outfits as a result of that obsession!
The top is a hand screenprint design titled "Harajuka Girl"and the skirt is a combination of cotton fabrics. I have sewn some of the seams the wrong way out to add some interest and it's finished off with cotton broderie anglaise edging.
All finished off with an obi style belt.

Too cool for school!

I made these items out of used leather and suede belts.
To add a little colour and interest, I have included some wooden beads and a "spur star"which was part of a big bundle kindly given to me by the saddlery shop.
I surprised myself at the end product. Truly original and one of a kind !
I have kept a necklace similar for myself and these
have gone to the website.

Uni bags just for fun...

I made these as a result of being involved in the Gladstone Ecofest .
I have used vintage buttons and various other recycled embellishments to come up with the end result...These bags are great for a weekend picnic, lectures or filling up with books from the library...

"Kiss" Clasp Purse

I made this for a friend who gave me a supply of her Mum's old doillies and table cloths. There were so many with little intricate details and this seemed a match made in heaven.... This is officially the first purse that I have made with a metal frame... I am really happy with my end product and am feeling inspired to create more....

I love screenprinting! Actually I love anything that changes the shape, texture and look of the surface I'm working with. I have screenprinted these using a hand cut stencil which adds a touch of personality to each piece.

These are some I have done recently, and I believe each deserves a name :-
"Princess Lili", "Bunny Blue Eye", and
the "Oriental Fish" all printed up to a child's size 12 and adults upon request.

It's a Wrap!!

Jill and I have been busy creating these little numbers. They are a combination of various fabrics with a black jersey turnover band. The front section of the skirt overlaps creating a wrap effect....
We keep getting asked if they come in adult sizes....Sure do and proving to be very popular.....

More summer linen

Another moment of inspiration with summer linen. I have created the seams back to front and overstitched for effect. Tie sleeves and finished of with navy gingham binding has created a timeless look.

Lovely Summer Linen

Ali Bird

I loved creating this lovely summer dress. Made with a lightweight summer linen and finished with reused doilies for the sleeves. I have finished it of with a doilie flower badge. The centre button was cut from an old jacket...My gorgeous daughter Lili is the stunning model for this photo.... I will be making a dress for myself in the near future.
