I'm Smitten with...

Yesterday's post about Home Base Collections had me hankering for some more fabric goodness, so, I am pleased to start this 'I' Post with a lovely fabric based collection from Australia -

Ink and Spindle

Lara Cameron, Bianca van Meeuwen and Tegan Rose and the three Melbourne (Australia) based textiles designers behind Ink and Spindle.

What excites me about Ink and Spindle, and the work of Lara, Bianca and Teagan is the fact that they specialise in high quality textile printing for designers and independent labels. For someone like me who has always had a hankering for fabric design, this gets my creative juices flowing no end!

Along with this great printing service the Ink and Spindle gals also produce their own ranges of fabrics and textile based homewares, stationery, sewing kits and more...

"Irregular Expressions is a family project.

Daughter and son helps her with handling the shop.
We all love to be etsians and sharing our work with all art and craft lovers.
All our creations are unique, they will never be produced again."

I LOVE them!!!

Isabella's Art

You may or may not know this, but I adore shadow puppets : ), and this collection from Isabella's Art is no exception. Isabella specialises in "portraying myths, legends, superstition, folk songs and all other things related to folklore."

Intricately laser cut, these puppets (pictured below) would be a wonderful addition to the story-telling and make-believe life of a small (or big for that matter) boy or girl.

Isabella's work doesn't stop at Shadow Puppets, check out her website for a full range of prints, paper goods and other handmade goodness...
