Australiana wildflower neckpieces














I have been slowly collecting vintage Australiana tea towels and table cloths for the last year, to make into these one of a kind neckpieces. They have quite a few stitches, as not only are they all free motion sewn - they are then free motion sewn together. I sew over the floral pattern again, camouflaged so that you can't see where they have been joined!

Perfect for Mother's Day, they are available in my shop now!

Many stitches make lots of work!






A sneak peak at whats to come this week!
I haven't made any Australiana neckpieces in a long time.
I needed the time to collect some vintage tea towels and table cloths suitable for repurposing into free motion sewn floral neckpieces. They  will all be one of a kind and in store just in time for Mothers Day!xx

Made from sentimental items ::







This is a custom made doll for someone's 10th birthday!
The three different dresses are made from her toddler outfits.
Making her doll very sentimental and one of a kind.
I also made a crochet scarf, wrap and faux fur stole to complete each look.

I'm taking orders now for custom made dolls.
You can send me items that are special to you, 
either your children's old clothes or items from a loved Grandparent..

Grumpy Bunnies










A couple of grumpy bunnies who are in the shop for Easter!
Their faces are free motion sewn and their hair/ears are merino wool felt.
Their arms are a little longer than normal, 
so that they can cross their arms and try to look grumpy!

Frida textile art












This new range of Frida textile art is a step up from the last.
With all Frida's dresses made from silk.
The last one shown here is very unusual, being a striped silk.
I think its my favourite of the lot!
