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".

Some dress ups for children's rooms..

These are some designs I have been working on recently..my children's favourite would have to be the red spot. I hand printed the branch and embellished with handmade yo-yo's and applique. It is available in a pastel pink spot also.
I haven't forgotten the lads! A red/blue and white pattern will sit well in a range of themes - nautical/fish/transport. Still working on a jungle/safari theme...

Something Red

Being involved with an Art Collective provides lots of opportunities to pursue a creative side in lieu of commercial incentive.
POD Collective is the name of our group and our latest "challenge" was to produce a piece of work with the theme "something red".

I created a 3 colour lino block print from a sketch I had done. I have framed it with a simple black frame and quite happy with the result. I also experimented printing with the block onto a grey felt bag.

Print and Stitch

These are some t-shirt designs that I printed onto natural cotton calico. The idea was to keep printing my designs over the top and end up with a montage of all my prints...however, I got the fabric out and decided to machine stitch scene's over the top with black cotton. I really like the finished product and they will be incorporated into throw pillows, tote bags or maybe framed. I will put the finished products on at a later date.
