A cushion story...

Available in my Etsy shop.  Original art printed digitally with solvent free water based pigment inks onto Belgian Linen Cotton and made up by me.  Custom orders welcome.


Cushion Project

I once heard someone explain serendipity as accidentally on purpose and that's the perfect description for the cushion project.

 Put simply I took some leftovers, reminders of a personal failure, messed about with them and turned it all into a series of artworks.  Above DECK CHAIRS and and a multi coloured version of HATS OFF printed digitally using solvent free water based pigment inks.

Need multiples or different sizes maybe?  No problem, just contact me via my Etsy shop and we'll work together to create the perfect assortment.  HATS OFF is available in both an aqua blue and dusty pink and can be supplied in any size.  For inserts The Bedroom has a wide variety of sizes in both 100% duck feather and duck/polyester combo.

All cushions come with the pinhead stamp of approval, more print options coming soon.


Ugly Cute

For a long while it was just called ugly cute, the BIG VEST is my latest project and will be released in the next month or so.  Also in the works some cushion making kits, a pair of hot pants and a sundress (backless of course) so lets see which makes it to the top of the pile.

The BIG VEST is worn here with the THE TUNIC, ridiculously simple and super quick to make.  All of the fabrics featured were found at Tessuti in Melbourne.


new pattern PARTY DRESS


Draped, quilted and  beaded, roomy through the body with a super short hem.  Wear tested and dance floor ready the PARTY DRESS sewing pattern is finally complete.  

The pattern is available in Australia sizes 8-14 from my Esty shop.  For international customers a size conversion chart can be found right here.

The Zebra print silk was found at Tessuti in Melbourne and the contrast yoke was cut from some left overs.  I purchased my beads from Maria's Beads and Trims in the Nicholas building.  If you've never quilted fabric or stitched with heavy top stitching thread you'll find a HOW TO here and here.


Party Dress wear testing

The PARTY DRESS has been in the works for a very long time, in fact, I made the first version way back when I was still a student.  It turned up by surprise in a clean out all musty and in need of repairs.  

The latest update is shorter and narrower, shaped, bias cut and with a more wearable back cowl.  The yoke is still quilted and beaded but with some added curves and not quite so spongy.  

The sample is made from a Liberty print silk crepe called Shinjuku found at The Fabric Store.  The sewing pattern will be available from my Etsy shop in the next couple of weeks but first some wear testing...
