recycle






I'll be working with my local council this year to teach a upcycled craft project. I thought my lunch tote to be the perfect and easy pattern to make use of old tea towels. What a great little bag to carry your lunch to work or even your latest crochet/knitting project in. I will add the pattern to my shop later this week. And if you are local (Sutherland Shire) I'll be running the class in July and will put the date on my blog as soon as confirmed.

homework




We are stepping it up a bit around here. Homework is getting done well before it's due (to alleviate the last minute dramas). And we are aiming for A+. Not sure how sustainable this effort is. But it's been surprisingly fun so far thanks to teachers with insight into how boys like to learn.

shibori




WOW. I loved the shibori workshop run at Koskela by the super talented and lovely Shibori Textiles girls. I need to do some more of this! I took along with me 2 metres of organic white cotton and later turned it into a dress. My new favourite dress.

sweet little heart


I have been very happy to help my lovely intern finish her Uni degree by working with me in the studio this past month. Her smiling face and easy attitude has made working together a breeze. I had set her a task to design a series of embroideries for kids and this is the very first one. These have been digitally printed locally in full colour on ethically sourced cotton/hemp. The kit includes thread, instructions and needle. Everything a little one needs to start on a easy and satisfying project that will kick off a never-ending love of all things craft.

A huge thanks to my crafty model. She is my inspiration when it come to craft for little ones. Her excitement and can do attitude is infectious.

Available in the shop here.

this friday

My new painted reclaimed timber houses

I will be bringing some new dotty giraffes

I have chosen not to do many markets this year. My boys have needed me to be around. And I've been able to focus a bit more on wholesale with a new partnership. The Designers Agency. I also have a new part-time job at Lilly & Lolly. It's a position I LOVE, with a group of people that make turning up to work, not work at all. Such a blessing.

So, when I do a market... it's gotta be a good one. And this one definitely is. Run by the amazing Mel. It is fun, quick and full of great stalls.

slippers


I made a pair of these slippers earlier in the year. I LOVE them. And happily wear them around the house most days. When they are too dirty, I throw them in the wash. I've decided to share the process of sewing the slippers in my Studio next week. Bookings will open on Wednesday. So put Nov 1st in your diary and check back in a few days to secure a place at the retreat.
The other photo... random shot of myself and one of the boys on holidays recently (very windy day).
