A quilt for Skyla...

Another crafty number I've been working on for the last few months is a quilt for a girlfriend's little girl, and because (with 2 boys already) I'll never have my own, I couldn't wait to get right into a pretty girly project...

Skyla Belle turns 2 at the end of the month and this lucky girl is getting a whole new bedroom. I helped her mum pick out a white scroll bed, a red dressing table and a huge circular mirror, now here are the parts I have made - styled in my little boy's room!

The quilt is an easy patchwork of too cute fabrics in white, reds and pinks, all sourced online. A matching pillowcase, cushion and upholstered stool (not shown) complete the look. The lamp shade is from Ikea and I spray painted a base from Bunnings Warehouse to match.

So pretty, I'll update with new pics when her room is completed after her birthday.

Introducing: Tango & James Nest

Here's what has been keeping me quiet for a couple of weeks, my preparations for the next Handmade Market (on Feb 7th) and a new incarnation for Tango & James. Just to keep things interesting, I have decided to go with a homewares collection, still with the sassy Tango & James look, and completely unique - of course! Here's a sneak peak...

Cushions, lamps and my "Flock" and "Flutter" mobiles

Loads of colour, unusual combinations, it's all me.
Squeal if you love it!
