What a clever way of getting your children to carry their own towels to and from the beach and they look pretty stylish too!
Susan has also done a wonderful job with her Handmade Christmas gifts and I particularly love her 'Ballerina Bag' above - every princess needs one of these! Thankyou Susan for sharing so many of your handmade gifts with us all!
The recipient of this gift will be excited with this Space Boy to cuddle!
Susan has handmade this lovely pinafore, pants and booties set for a Secret Santa gift.
Thanks Lorraine for your second entry of lovely pillows in Amy Butler's 'Daisy Bouquet Mist' and 'Binky' softie from the Melly & Me range of patterns.

Talented Saffron Craig's beautiful Australian handscreen printed Christmas panels have been in our shop for a while now and we have limited stocks! If your quick you too can make some fantastic unique and bright Christmas decorations, Christmas stockings, appliques or many other Christmas handmade creations and with this sale price they are not to be missed!
Use this fabulous Christmas stocking fabric panel to make one stocking or make two by purchasing the coordinating sunburst fabric to back each stocking! These stockings are also the perfect size for a bottle of red or white wine and would be a creative Xmas gift idea for friends, family, and work colleagues or fill with chocolate or soaps as a beautiful gift for the childrens teachers.
Stocking panels also have extra beautiful designs down the sides that can also be backed with sunburst coordinating fabric to make sensational Christmas decorations for your tree, mantle or gift giving. Another idea would be to use these to decorate your Christmas lunch or dinner table or use your imagination to create beautiful handmade Christmas cards or placecards.
Saffron has really picked up on the spirit and festivities of Christmas with her fabulous 'Christmas Decorations' panel above.
Make exquisite and unique decorations for the tree.......
or for the mantle, door hanging, windows etc etc...
or whip up some stand-out appliques for Christmas tees, onesies and singlets or that 'special' Christmas quilt!

I am so pleased that Toni is extending her women's range with the Summer Fling gorgeous top and I have a feeling there will be more to come. I recently met the lovely Toni and she was wearing one of her versatile wrap skirts made up in Heather Bailey fabric which looked sensational on her and I have had so many others comment that they have been enjoying sewing and wearing this flattering skirt too! Please keep your feedback coming on the patterns I stock as I have been loving receiving the feedback and your images for the Kelani Inspiration Gallery too.
Dress the Summer Fling up with a skirt or pants or just wear casually with denim. This top features a soft gathered neckline and is a relaxed-fit for comfort. Tie the sash under your bust for a fitted look or remove the sash, the choice is yours.
The Bloom tunic and short set is just adorable with the shorts featuring fabric-covered buttons and cute little pockets. Another versatile pattern that can be worn as a set or separately.
Toni has also catered well for the boys and added great value with this beaut Little Explorer pattern that features an organic turtle applique design, relaxed shorts with side pockets and easy-wear overalls with button closure.

I also pinned the dolls on to a lovely embroidered ribbon to show you this effect. Hung as a vertical mobile shows the nesting effect of the dolls well. This way would be perfect also using a few dolls for a pram tie or even another DIY project would be to make your own infant floor play gym and attach dolls overhead for baby to play with. I think I will try this last idea with Kristen Doran's drummer boys that will soon be available in my store.
A matryoshka mobile, pram tie or play gym would make such a special christmas gift for a newborn. A child or adult would adore a beautiful handmade matryoshka mobile.
