printed fabrics become products

Now that I have a nice stash of printed yardage I have been compelled to sew a variety of products for my Etsy shop.

Using my 'Bondi Swimmers" design, I decided to sew a rectangular cushion. I even went the extra step and added some nautical inspired piping. I was pretty happy with how this turned out and have a new love for piping!

Years ago I lived in Japan, so my 'Kimino' design holds a sentimental spot in my heart. I'd love to take my family there and immerse ourselves in the culture.

I spiced the reverse side of the cushion with a hot pink woven wool and finished with black piping.

This time I made a tote using my 'Aussie Flora' design. I went for an earthy look, using a taupe coloured hand loomed hemp as the base and kangaroo leather straps.

The thing I love about Kangaroo leather is that it's so lightweight yet so incredibly strong...plus it's Australian of course.
