Tickle Me Tuesdays - If you go into the woods today....

These are the beautiful images floating in my head lately....

Kind of like a jumbled-up fairy-tale.

For more Tickle me Tueday posts or for a chance to play along visit Yes,Teacher!

Canvas Leaf Box

These are two little fabric boxes I made for the leaf themed challenge of the European Etsy Team.

You know how I've been obsessed with these leaves lately....

so, as you can imagine, a leaf challenge was pretty welcome!

These fabric boxes are pretty popular around this house.

There's so much we use them for.

And they're listed in the shop.

I spy...... Home Beautiful by Jess Wright

This week I spy the beautiful home of graphic designer Jess Wright and family. 

It was love at first sight for me.

I'd move into a house like that in a heartbeat.

You can find more pictures of this beautiful home and the full post in Melbourne Home -The Design Files.

And you can find Jess Wright's quality handmade textiles over at Harvest Textiles- the store that she and two other super talented Australian women share and run.

My Creative Space- More Leaves

I've been working on my leaves for a bit now.

The pop of the bright red thread on the starkness of the cotton canvas is in keep with the red/pink phase that has come over me lately.

Usualy you will find them hidden under one of these.

But I find them way too pretty to always be playing second fiddle.

I actualy wear a pair identical to the one in the photo above, which I love.

I should have some ready to put in the shop soon.

Brand New Circle Bag!

The latest challenge of the European Etsy Team , hosted by the marvellous Fishes Make Wishes is all about Geometric Beauty.
Since I've been making lots of Circle Brooches lately, I thought it would be a cop-out to just add one of those as my entry....
The point of these challenges is to be inspired to make something completely new.
So, springing off the challenge -but not being able to get away from the Circle alltogether-  I give you:

As the -pretty descriptive- title suggests, it's a fully reversible white cotton bag...with a really big circle on it.

Which just happens to be a pocket.
It's like a giant Circle Brooch, made out of circles in a variety of my favourite red, pink and white fabrics.

Their edges -just like the brooches'- are  unfinished in order to get the shabby chic look that seems to be becoming something of a mania for me lately.

If you turn it inside-out, you get an antique-white natural cotton canvas bag.
Plain but for a square pocket in the same canvas with red stitching.

This is also made to fray into shabby-chicness. 
The straps are long wide and made of the same white cotton used on the outer bag.

Though it's not a big bag, it fits quite a lot because it's shaped like a market bag.

More Circles

Here are a few more Circle Brooches that I've made recently and actualy photographed:

This fabric with the green flowers is proving a real hit.
I'm glad I've got some of it left.

The red fabric on the other brooch is also quite wonderful.
It's a fabulous cotton I just can't get enough of.

I love working with it.
And I love it in this nautical-looking combination paired with denim and plain canvas.
