I love this combination of blue and green. My mother made Dad a pair of boardies from this - and he looks very funky!
This is one of our lovely customer's creations. Susie made a wonderful wipes cover with our beautiful Red Kimono Fabric by Oilily. Sadly we only have a little left in the red colourway. We also have this available in blue. http://www.funkyfabrix.com.au/ (Euro fabric category)

How gorgeous is the new Madison Skirt Pattern by Little Bird Patterns? Super easy to make, with full sized pattern and detailed step by step instructions. If you are a beginner sewer, Little Bird Patters are ideal. Even I can use them!
This skirt has 3 variations, tiered, exposed seams tiered and traditional A-line. It is made to sit just below the waist and falls to just below the knee. If you would like to make a shorter version you can leave out the bottom tier to make a little mini version.
You will find this, and other Little Bird Patterns online now. www.funkyfabrix.com.au
We have been selling this for years now, and it is still our number 1 seller! I love the Scandinavian retro feel of this fabric - so Finnish in design.
We also have a new range of Robert Kaufman children's fabric by Amy Schimler arriving this week - yet to be released in Australia, you can be the first on the block to own these wonderful fabrics.

I hope you all had a wonderful Mothers Day. I had a lovely day with my 4 beautiful children.
Mothers Day is tinged with sadness for us though. We lost my sister-in-law Louise, early last year to breast cancer, she was only 41. I took her daughter to the movies us yesterday. Nothing can ease the pain of spending Mothers Day without your mother, but I hope we helped in a little way.
I am lucky enough, at the age of 44, to still have my mother and my grandmother.
