Some aliens live in the air, among the stars and the rain clouds.


Some live in the water…


… and some live in the forest. Woodland aliens, take me to your queen.

Three more itty bitty kitty fabrics.

New fabric designs at spoonflower.

Made from Melbourne tram tickets, this design is based on Wanda Gag’s ‘Millions of Cats’ book and my Itty Bitty Kitty Machine artwork (seen here and here).

I am in the process of uploading all of the colour permutations (hope to finish today). In the interim feel free to vote in this week’s warmable pillow competition.

(Can’t help it – I am a sucker for entering a competition!)

Spoonflower fabric competition is open for voting now.




Well, one of my new year’s resolutions is to try designing fabric fromĀ  cardboard collages. I have a first attempt uploaded at Spoonflower.This was made salvaged cardboard (of course) and the office photocopier.


I have submitted it as a part of the upcoming weekly design competition that starts this Friday (15th Feb). The theme is ‘African inspired’ materials. My final design (below) is okay for a first attempt.


The inspiration for the design was to emulate the bright colours and patterning of popular African fabrics and bring in elements of contemporary designs like Afrocoffee’s fabulous ‘No Money No Ladies’ and recycled paper bowls.

Still a way to go yet but at least I have made a start!
