I love to use denim for bunting, it's not exactly easy to use but I love the final look.

Made It Feature with Bec Davies, my vintage bunting published in Family Circle Magazine CHRISMAS 2012

My Vintage bunting was included in a printed article, 'Crafting a new life'  -  Australian Family Circle Magazine 2012 - Christmas Edition!

I'm very pleased to see my vintage bunting in a printed publication but also it's great to see Bec Davies talk about her fantastic handmade online website than she created.

It's a great inspiring story of an ex graphic designer that built from scratch.
Bec lives in the beach side town of Yamba, NSW with her husband & new baby girl.
It's a busy but enjoyable lifestyle. I'm sure she is the envy of many crafters!
A great life, wonderful artists/designers to promote & a brilliant website, it sounds like the perfect job to me!

I'm proud to be part of this great website, Bec is very supportive. It a great handmade online website where you can buy great quality items directly from the designer that makes them.

I ask everyone to support handmade this Christmas & beyond!
And please support

oh..... and don't forget there is a sister site call
for all you crafting supply needs!

Metro Retro Tea Towel Kitchen Aprons - Australian Wild Flowers, Kangaroo Paw & Blue Wrens

Just recently I completed a few more aprons from my tea towel collection.
I had to make up more Australian themed aprons as they are quite popular around Christmas time as they make great gifts.

'The ideal handmade gift for someone special or for spoiling yourself'. 

I love to upcycle and give a new life to something that had an intended previous use.
Some of my  tea towels are brand new but many are retro vintage - that is 20-40 years old! They are in excellent condition as they have never been used for their original purpose.
I try to source my tea towels from all around the world, Australia, United Kingdom & the USA, to just name a few.
