Puzzle Australian Fabric Tour: <br> The Mulberry Tree

As my sewing studio has now gone mobile I thought it would be fun to do a Puzzle Fabric tour of all the great fabric stores I find along my travels. We spent a lovely Easter week camping in the Showgrounds of Milton, a little town just next to Ulladulla in New South Wales. The town of Milton was tiny, hip and friendly with only a couple of main streets that were packed with lovely cafes, restaurants, boutique shops and luckily for me this amazing fabric shop!  There were shelves packed with the most gorgeous prints and notions and I spent a great...


Puzzle Pieces: the Merry Romper

Puzzle Pieces: the Merry Romper

A couple of weeks ago we kicked off our Puzzle Pieces series with a combination of the Ring Around the Rosie Romper and the Flying Fox Dungarees to create a fun and frilly pair of overalls. This week we're back with another great mash up - the Merry Romper! This outfit combines the Merry Go Round pattern bodice and large collar with the Ring Around the Rosie high bloomers for an all new take on the patterns, perfect for parties or playgrounds!  I fell so in love with this version - but one of the best parts of the whole...

This gown has the perfect amount of ease for movement while still holding a stylish shape and an adorable Peter Pan collar.  I came across this delicious fleece at Spotlight on sale and...

Puzzle Pieces: Ruffled Dungarees

Happy New Years! It was so exciting to end 2017 with the launch of our debut collection Playtime - and I'm even more excited to kick off the blog with lots of fun sewing projects in 2018! As you may know, the Playtime collection is designed around creating a capsule wardrobe with the pattern pieces being interchangeable - like a puzzle. All the patterns are fun on their own, but this gives you the ability to create and design pieces all your own.   In this blog series 'Puzzle Pieces', I'll show you different and fun ways you can mix them up to create all...

the Flying Fox roundup! Part two.

Day 2 of the Flying Fox round up and we have some super cute versions to share with you today!  Dusty's beautiful version with contrasting pockets (and that bonnet!!) is divine.  Gabrielle's retro bodice mixed with amber corduroy is funky and fun!  Feyza often sews for both of her little ones creating the coolest sibling outfits. Plus how great is that brother and sister bond? Gorgeous!  \  Amanda's uber girly Fox is so sweet on her little lady. Wendy's version shows the Fox can be great for country life and still incredibly adorable at the same time.  . . . . That's...
