Creative Customer Competition Winners!

Wishing blog readers and customers a Happy New Year filled with much happiness and joy, not to mention much creativeness in all their handmade projects for 09'!

Thankyou to the customers who contributed to the handmade inspirational gallery in December and congratulations to Kirsten and Julia, who I have chosen to receive a Kelani Gift Voucher this month. Well Done!

Kirsten has handmade both of these beautiful messenger bags using some of the gorgeous 'Australian Designer' textiles by Shannon Lamden and Lara Cameron and may I say they are both darn 'impressive'! For those Birch Forest fans there will be more here in a few weeks in a couple of 'exclusive' colourways.

And these beautifully hand sewn childrens sets are from Julia. The fabrics chosen are so tasteful and work really well together in these garments. Julia's skirt was made using the Pink Fig Stripwork Skirt pattern and the shorts using the fabulous new Make It Perfect Little Explorer pattern.

I continue to love viewing my customer's creativeness and look forward to receiving many more of your beautiful creations for my gallery this year! There are already a few entries that have been emailed to me for this month which I will be posting on the gallery in the next couple of days so don't forget to drop by for a little inspiration.

Don't be shy email a pic of your handmade goodies to gallery@kelanifabric.com.au and the winner for the month of January will be announced early February. More info
