mint

Hello minty fresh version of Village Life!
These are loads of fun to sew up. I love the sparkle in the copper print. And mint, I'm having a love affair with you.

I designed and sewed a bag for a friend. We were both pretty happy with the results.

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?
