Kelani Inspiration Gallery Winners!

After a fairly long delay due to a number of new store and gallery updates, I am delighted to announce the winners of our inspiration gallery competition..

Louise has shared her lovely creative projects with us and has created some wonderfully unique items!

I absolutely loved Melanie's choice of what many of us would consider a traditional boy's fabric for a girl's sundress. The same dress in Sandi Henderson 'strawberry fields' is also very sweet!

Jenny has made these beautiful lamps and lampshade from our lovely Australian Designer fabrics.

Tamika has created this beautiful linen set from the Good Train japanese fabric for her son.

Katie has designed and sewn her own sleeping bags which have come up a treat, along with a number of Nicole Mallalieu Chunky Purse and Spec Cases. See more in our gallery.

Claire has not only tackled her very first quilt using the 'bumblebub quilt' from the Melly & Me Kaleidoscope book (beautiful!) but she has also sewn these stunning clutches using the Anna Maria Horner Ruthie Clutch pattern as well as this sweet Make It Perfect Uptown Girl Jacket.

Thank you to all our truly talented customers for inspiring so many with your gorgeous handmade creations and for taking the time to email us such fabulous images. I am always blown away by all our entries and we have such a tough time choosing winners!!! Be sure to check out our gallery for more customer creations and details of their fabulous blogs and handmade businesses. I feel like I am now finally back on track and will upload September entries into our gallery next week.

Balloons Over Paris

If you can't visit Paris bring Paris to you with these NEW gorgeous whimsical Paris fabrics! 'Balloons over Paris' is a lovely collection of fabrics with beautiful Paris scenes and hot air balloons on a medium weight natural cotton/linen blend. The design is mirrored on both selvedges with the balloons floating in between.

Also a part of this lovely collection is French Balloons! Our house is set up high and we are fortunate enough to see hot air balloons floating in the distance always bringing much excitement from my daughters in the early hours of the morning! There is something about hot air balloons and the magic feeling of floating above the world!

                                                                         Enjoy xx

Far Far Away II Now Available

The much anticipated Far Far Away II fabric collection by Heather Ross has arrived and it is absolutely exquisite. An exceptional children's fabric collection featuring wonderful illustrations from well known fairytales Rapunzel, Sleeping Beauty and The Owl & The Pussycat. Printed on a gorgeous textured linen this collection has three superb colour palettes of meadow, plum and aqua. It is very difficult to choose a favourite from this collection as all the designs and their colourways are incredible. This collection is perfect for children's bedroom decor and clothing and I will be very excited to see what some of our customers create with it.

And isn't the above contemporary quilt made from the Far Far Away II fabrics just beautiful!! This quilt pattern by talented modern quilt designer Rebecca Johnson is on its way to us and will be available in our store for purchase early next week.

We have been receiving many emails from customers requesting notification of the arrival of this collection. I realise it sounds a little like a sales pitch but we do have disappointed customers who sometimes miss out on a popular collection because they sell quickly so if you LOVE Far Far Away II get in quick and order your favourites today.

Keep in touch also with our new arrivals as we will be uploading many new japanese fabrics + more in the coming days!
