Ow Boy

I was asked by Amelia from Willows to make a few boy sets.
I had to put my mind in the right direction. No angles, flowers and pink...
I thought well horses cowboys and owls should do the trick.
Here is the result!
They went of to Willows straight away, just in time for Christmas.

Monday, December 7, 2009


Thanks again for everybody who came and said hi last Sunday.
Marleen and I had a great day. Wonderful weather and even though we were moved with our stall to another aisle early in the morning... grrr... most of our customers found us!
I will update my made it store this week with all the new goodies :)
Well very sad, but this was our last market together as Marleen will move to Brisbane in a little while.
I am going to miss her a lot....

Dress for Rose

I had put the fabrics and ribbons together a little while ago and thought that they looked really funky together, but I didn't know what to make of it.
Then I found this beautiful pattern and new it would be perfect. I changed it around a bit and Rose tried it on today.
She loved it!
I think I am going to make a couple more for the Maitland Markets.
Ow yeah, for those of you who didn't know, Marleen and I will be on the Maitland Markets the first Sunday of December.
I am looking forward to it :)


When I made 'the princess on the pea' t-shirt a bit ago I also thought of making Rapunzel in her tower. The hair had to be wool and the tower out of fabric.
I finally came around to make them today and I am so happy with the outcome.
I couldn't stay true to the real fairytale as I left the door of the tower ajar...

The cutest little fairy

How gorgeous are the Jacaranda's!
I saw them bloom for the first time three years ago and I was stunned by it's beauty.

When I drove home the other day into Lorn with all the Jacaranda's in bloom, listening to "Casta Diva" on the CD player and my beautiful Rose in the back seat I felt inspired to make this singlet for her.

Rose loves the fairy wings singlet. "Just like Tinkerbell!"

I made a more colourful singlet with wings and pom poms for the little rose label and placed it on my made it store.
Have a beautiful day :)

Little Suit

After lots of cutting, drawing, sewing, cutting and cutting again I think I have made the little baby suit perfect for this summer. Not too wide but nice and puffy, snug around the top with cute little ribbons and beautiful bright fabric. This is just some fabric from last year, but you can expect the suit to be in all the new colorful Dutch fabrics!

Russian Delight

The Princes On The Pea

What a great photographer is the English fashion photographer Tim Walker. I love his stuff. It is all so fairytale like and pretty!!
I couldn't get over this picture of the princes on the pea, ripped it out of Vogue and pinned it on my wall-of-inspiration.

I started working with ribbons and felt and this is (slightly less glamorous, but ever so cute) what came out of my hands....
