craft with me

Would you like to join with me on a mini sewing retreat? I'm throwing open the studio doors this thursday in the sunny Sutherland Shire. Bookings can be done here: http://sewn.bigcartel.com I would love to have you join me. We will sew, stuff toys, sew a bit more & most probably laugh all the way through.

in the shop


It's a really great feeling to have produced a new design. I thought this year would be full of new designs, but it wasn't so. Ideas have swirled around in my head, but there's just not been the correct time until now to get them onto fabric. It's definitely the beginning of a few new designs. I'm trying to take a more structured approach from now on. 
I love the metallic copper in this design. It's a little bit sparkly. Things that sparkle always catch my attention and have a magical quality. Is it just me?

the block



It's no secret to my friends and work colleagues that I'm a fan of The Block. I even tried to talk a workmate into going on the show (failed). So when one of my Kokeshi Dolls was in an episode… I was nearly doing backflips (if I wasn't past that kinda thing).

If you own a shop and would like to stock any of my toys please contact The Designers Agency.

string bag

I can't tell you how much I loved making this.
Perfect for carrying around my projects.

Crochet string bags. Is there anything more perfect in the crafty world? Beauty and function mixed in with a little nostalgia.
