Baby Love

These little shoes just danced their way into the shop!

I made the shoes using the okiniri pattern pictured above. The kit comes with the pattern and the kit to make the little green shoes. Templates are included for three sizes: small, medium and large. Click here to purchase the pattern and kit for the shoes.

I used the strawberry print from the Meadowsweet range so I could match the fabric to make a hat.

I made this hat using the Lazy Day Hat pattern by Australian designer Toni Coward.

Fresh Specials In Store and On The Web

We've just added these fresh specials to our website - reduced from $25 per metre to $19 per metre while stocks last.

Hampton is a Civil War reproduction fabric range designed by Jo Morton with the International Quilt Study Centre (that would be in Nebraska, not Australia). Click the link to see the entire range.
These prints are inspired by fabric in actual quilts at the Quilt Study Centre.

You will love the attention to detail.
We've made fabric packs containing fat eighths and fat quarters. Fat eighths are perfect for adding little pieces to your stash or your Civil War projects where you want a variety of fabrics to replicate the vintage scrappy look.

India and back home.

This is where we've been... This is a village welcome near Rohet, India.

I am trying on a sari embroidered by these women in their home.

This is us in a Brahmin village near Rohet, India.
Back at home... these Civil War fabrics from "Peddler's Pack" have been reduced to only $19 per metre (originally priced at $25 per metre).

We've had over 100 fabrics arrive in store that I am still to add to the website. Stay tuned for details!
I hope you enjoyed your holidays, and a Happy New Year to all.
