Creative Customer January/February Gallery Winners

My apologies for the delay in posting the winning entries for our creative customer gallery competition. We have been working hard behind the scenes on a few things we look forward to sharing with you in the coming months as well as uploading sooo many new arrivals into our shop.

The gorgeous images above are of a chair Katie picked up from the side of the road and recovered in Hoffman Petal Punch. Katie was looking for something contemporary and bright to go with the natural wood style of the danish looking chair which she sanded and oiled as part of this revamp. Congratulations Katie, you are the 1st winner of a $25 Kelani Voucher.

Julia has sewn this gorgeous boys top and pant set using the fabulous Oliver + S Sailboat top, skirt and pants pattern. I love the simple fabrics Julia chose for both pieces to give such a classic look. The light weight denim is available in our store and works really well for all clothing. Congratulations Julia for being our 2nd $25 gift voucher winner!

Julia's Pink Fig Stripwork Skirt also came up a treat!

We had such a difficult decision choosing the winners this month as well as being a 'tad' late with this post that we are offering all other entries a 10% discount on their next order with us. I have pics of these entries below as they are all amazing and sooo inspirational!

Erika has transformed her bedroom beautifully with the addition of this bed head she covered in Japanese Cosmo flower fabric.

Fantastic handmade boys wallet using Japanese Kokka fabric! Carolyn has been extremely clever and made this wallet that opens out into a racing track and handy carry all for her sons matchbox cars. Carolyn tells me that she got this fabulous idea from The Princess and the Monkey. Be sure to pop over to this fantastic blog!

Claire made the most beautiful dresses from the gorgeous Oliver + S Birthday Party dress pattern. Claire also made a lovely clip holder and bloomers and clips that can be viewed in our gallery.

Speaking of the Birthday Party Dress, Rebekah has sewn this gorgeous dress also from the same pattern using Tanya Whelan, Darla fabrics.

Naomi has made this eye catching tote from the latest gorgeous japanese Echino Birdsong fabric.
I just love Kirsten's beautiful tunic using Nani Iro Pocho. Kirsten has an amazing blog here and a lovely etsy store here.
Adriana has made this A-line skirt with another of the latest gorgeous Echino fabrics, Quiet Ground and...
This ADORABLE magoo!
Carmel has made this lovely girls tunic using the oliver + s puppet show tunic dress and shorts pattern. I love Carmels coordinating Heather Ross Far Far Away fabric choices and her placement of the sweet unicorn in the middle!
Thanks again to all our customers for their FANTASTIC handmade creations! Please get in touch with us regarding the discount for your next order with us. Any creations emailed in March will be uploaded into our gallery shortly.
