ETSY FIND :: VALEZHKI hand dyed silk scarves

These beautifully coloured scarves by Valezhki are made from hand dyed silk. I can imagine that you’d feel like you were wearing a cloud or a wisp of fog with one of these around your neck. The lovely colours conjure up images of nature’s beauty: the inside of Mother of Pearl shells, storm clouds, flower petals, moss, waves and sea foam.

Lovely Linen :: Fictional Objects

Melbourne-based company Fictional Objects has a range of bed linen in simple graphic patterns and a minimal colour palette that’s designed to be mixed and matched. Their designs are produced in 100% cotton in all sizes from cot to king. Look how lovely it is…

Fictional Objects is committed to responsible manufacturing, traditional craft practice and sustainable design. I love the statement on their website that says Fictional Objects “grew from a desire to create useful, beautiful, and thoughtfully constructed products, that will be treasured and take on a life of their own”. Judging from the simplicity of design and the quality of the linen I’d say that they are achieving what they set out to.

I love the colours in the first image, but I also think that a set of bed linen in black and white mis-matched patterns below would be absolutely gorgeous. Yep, loving that idea.

These sleeping beauties are available from Fictional Objects online shop. Check out the full range there.

Hello Tokyo :: the red thread new fabric range

My first fabric range, called Hello Tokyo!, for Robert Kaufman was launched over the weekend at the International Quilt Market in Portland. Exciting! Together with the fabric there’s also a range of haby items: beautiful grosgrain ribbons, iron on motifs and buttons. My designs incorporate kawaii (Japanese for cute) girls, cats and birds in a bright colour palette and I’m so happy to at last be able to show it to you.

SPACE TO CREATE :: Jacqui Fink | Little Dandelion

This week’s installment of Space to Create takes us into the Alice in Wonderland world of Jacqui Fink who handcrafts chunky throws on knitting needles almost as big as she is. Working under the name Little Dandelion Jacqui has created a niche for herself with incredible one of a kind knitted textiles made from the softest unspun pure wool and linen. I’m really happy to be able to give you a peek into Jacqui’s world – I’ve been swooning over the photos of Jacqui’s creations and really enjoyed finding out about her unusual journey to her creative career.

Meet Jacqui…
