Just some photos - I got some bookshelves recently so everything is a lot more organised - one wall of my studio is now just shelves, which I love!
I've been trying to build up my stockpile of purses - it's much easier this way, I love having everything ready so when I receive an order it's all ready to go!
These are little fabric squares - I love the colours! They're a combination of new fabrics (some of my organic cottons, and some from fabric stores), recycled cottons, and vintage fabric.
And the result! I've wanted to make bunting for awhile, and am happy that I went with squares! I usually create designs based around the idea that a purse or pencilcase is rectangular, so the image needs to be 'framed' in the middle of the purse. Think this is naturally continuing to influence my design style, so I am happy to work with it!
Once I have photographed the bunting properly, I'll have a few for sale (hopefully today).
There will be many one-of-a-kind bunting for sale at Mathilda's Market in Hawthorn on August 22nd too!

Edited to add: more photos!
My old sketchbook was filled right up, so I had to buy a new one. I actually bought two - the first one was rejected because the pages were scratchy. And a card to send to someone special :D
I finally bought more bobbins! Now every thread has a matching bobbin - this is exciting to me, no more doubling up of colours!
And a plant - I rescued this plant from my kitchen where it was having issues, mostly due to sitting next to the rice cooker. More bunting, awaiting pinning and sewing! I am not a pin-user, normally, but it's somewhat necessary for bunting.
