The NEW amazing Handmade living book, gorgeous bundles of fabric, some Japanese fabrics, amazing hand printed fabrics,
a handmade sewing kit...so cute!
plus a couple of charm packs...buttons, a clip.. HEAPS of stuff!!
I am so excited!!!Let me tell you about this book....You can read all about it HERE but basically it is known as a Designers Collective. It all started with Julie Nichols, she had a vision of a "Market" shop open 6 days a week...this turned into a real shop owned by Julie and Rachel Evagalou called Handmade Canberra. Its located in Canberra Australia...(I'm dying to go!!) Designers from all over Australia sell their handmade crafts in their shop. Tania McCartney (author of a few other books) had a similar vision, like Julie and Rachel's shop, to create a book...One full of all things handmade....So together, in Dec it was released..and has been a HUGE hit!!
The book - Handmade living: a designer collective is a collection of incredible projects, ideas and inspiration from handmade designers all over Australia.
You can read HERE what other people are saying about this book.HERE. You will also find projects from Posie herself! Posie also has a fantastic shop full of vintage, reproduction and retro fabrics. She creates handmade patchwork quilts, totes and other gorgeous accessories. Oh Posie, i cant thank you enough...
Did i win!! or did i WIN!! xx
