This prize will also be randomly drawn on October 18th.

Here is in Anna Maria's words, how she was inspired to design 'garden party'. What an inspiring and wonderful insight to how a collection of exquisite fabrics can develop!

"My thoughts for Garden Party were first and foremost inspired by the palette of beautiful things I collected as I was preparing to host a huge engagement party for an old friend last year. I was gathering flowers, cakes, linens, cocktails mixes, wines, working in the garden, and thinking ahead to what it would be like to have such an eclectic group of people in my home all to celebrate the happy couple on a sweltering hot August evening. I thought about all the elements that pull a party together, from the bouquets on the tables to the tiles on the dancefloor and the sometimes quirky, sometimes romantic combinations of different personalities meeting up for the first time. I was inspired by the optimism of the 50's and the clever swank of the 40's."

This is a medium home dec weight fabric with a wide width that would look stunning as wall art, clothing and upholstery as above, as well as bags and lamps as pictured below. There are endless possibilities to what you can do with this collection!

Pink Fig Patterns

Kelani is particularly proud to be the first in Australia to stock Chelsea Anderson's Pink Fig children's patterns!

Chelsea's latest pattern is 'the Patchwork skirt & t-shirt' featured below which includes the pattern for the skirt and embellished t-shirt. This skirt is terrific for so many of us that have difficulty in choosing from so many beautiful fabrics. Mix and match colours from the one designer or co-ordinating themes and colours from many designers.

If you would like to learn the art of applique and embellishment or play around with creating your own words on fabric using your computer Chelsea Anderson's 'Embellished' book here is packed with fantastic instructions as well as lots of other great ideas!

With the help of the 'Embellished' book learn how to create unique words on fabric like the 'vintage' on the t-shirt above using your home computer. Along with the lovely photographs, the Pink Fig website also has a fantastic shirring and gathering tutorial.

This skirt in Shannon Lamden's adorable 'cookies' fabric was made using this pattern.

If you are one of the many customers that have purchased any of the Pink Fig pattern range why not leave your comments on the patterns and please feel free to email some of your pics as we would love to see and add them to our inspiration gallery!

20% off Kristen Doran Matryoshka Dolls Continues!

Just wanted to let you all know that due to the huge demand for Kristen Doran's gorgeous matryoshka doll craft panels and Kristen closing her shop this week as her son is in hospital, I have decided to continue the sale on these lovely craft panels until 5pm Friday or until stocks run out! Some of the matryoshka doll colourways are getting very low and I doubt if they will last until Friday at this great price so if you have the urge to add these to your fabric stash I would get in quick! Kristen, I hope this week is not too stressful for you and I am thinking of your son!
