Aunty Cookie "NEW" Papercuts Design

Shannon's latest gorgeous 'papercut blooms' and coordinating 'papercuts' design was Hot! Hot! Hot! at the Stitches & Craft Show and I am so pleased to have it in the store.

Available in raspberry on birch and grey on black (divine!) 'papercuts' is a great all-rounder for craft, sewing and light home decorating projects. I also think this design would lend itself to lovely applique as the papercuts range in size from large to small and would suit either adult or children's apparel.

NEW Pippijoe Sling & Mini Sling Bag + Exclusive Fabric Colourways

One of Caitlin's (Pippijoe) beautiful sling bags hung at the front of our stand at the Stitches & Craft show and I lost count of how many customers asked for a pattern to make this 'gem' of a bag!

Well the wait is over and it is now available in the shop with the pattern including pieces and instructions to make both a standard and mini size perfect for light travelling or the 'mini-mees' in your life!

A great feature of this bag is that the strap can be adjusted for comfort!

Even better, if you wish to whip one up in one of Pippijoe's fabulous hand printed textiles, fabric requirements are only a 50 x 70cm piece - great value for a beautiful bag don't you think?

Also available are two Kelani exclusive colourways of Pippijoe Orchard & Daisies. Lovely neutral colourways of charcoal grey and milk chocolate, perfect for bag making, homewares, wall art etc.
