I'm thankful for the lovely designers that are sewing our hand-printed fabrics because I just feel like things aren't happening as quickly as I would like over at the Thea & Sami Camp. Am I just impatient or do many of you feel frustrated that you're not where you would like to be at any given time?
On a positive note, it is gratifying when people choose our fabrics and to see what they make with them. I love this bag by Margaret at Konstant Kaos using our Marguerite print in red on hemp/organic cotton. Fully washable, this creation will be one available at the Northside Makers Market in Melbourne on Saturday.
Margaret has also created a range of ever-so-wicked Wizard of Oz bags and purses. Fun!
We make our own range of hemp/organic cotton tea-towels from our printed fabrics but I love the retro spin the Shimi girls have put on theirs. The set of two, comprises of a bamboo fabric hand-towel featuring our Fretwork design in red and includes a tea-towel in the same fabric.The sets are also available in other colours here.
I spent some time looking around in the Shimi store and discovered that they have a range of very innovative maternity fashions and for new mothers. How stylish is the LBD - that's short for Little Breastfeeding Dress. The cleverly designed split-level front allows for discreet baby feeding.
Speaking of markets, I will be peddling my wares in Brisbane this Sunday at the Young Designers Market. If you are in Southbank, please say hello. I will be sewing some new products tomorrow and will bring plenty of fabric and scrap packs along for your crafty types.
