New Design!

We have come up with a bag design inspired by the need to keep creative projects away from little ones, this project satchel is perfect for storing knitting or sewing projects and also large enough for notebooks and journals. With pockets designed to hold all the tools of the trade this project satchel is perfect for crafters on the move! We are looking to have some in stock next week.

This is a very special one I have made for Jade after much discussion about her adorable little boy enjoying his game of pulling apart her knitting.

Its called Pots of Tea..

If you love it and need extra pockets or a larger size email us! We love custom orders.

Hope everyone is have a lovely weekend

Sunday Tote Making..

What a busy time! After moving everything over to our new blog last weekend I haven't had a moment this week to even write in it. Thank goodness Jade has been holding the fort with some beautiful moleskine blogs.

I just wanted to post a few pictures of a custom tote I made today for Phoebe Alexa Joy Photography (check out her beautiful prints on Etsy). She wanted a reversible tote and chose the gorgeous fabrics herself.

I am so happy with the results I can't wait to stock up on fabric and make some more for the shop.

Outside pattern (such yummy fabric)

And as Jade and I are keeping moleskine journals for the year we will continue posting some of out favourite pages for you to check out.

This is one of my recent collages called Hollie Sweet. I just love seeing all my favourite things together on a page.

Have a lovely weekend

Custom Moleskines!

Its not even 8am yet and already Ive stumbled onto one of the CUTEST things Ive seen in a long time, adding to our already huge obsession with moleskines here is a site that lets you create your own cover! and they laser engrave the image onto the front! the designs on the site are stunning, or you use your own custom look!

This idea is perfect for the artist who has almost everything, or even the journal guru who is on into the so called elite journals/notebooks!

the beautiful moleskines

check it out!

time to finish my dishes!

moleskin madness!

After much asking from Isobel, here are my pages from my little work in progress, my moleskine, I have so many pages to catch up, but slowly I shall fill my pretty with lots of love magick and art!

here is one of my pages filled with adorable pictures and a random blurred photograph my mum did lol.

I like to draw random things on my pages, hoping that one day I shall have a little talent!
my next page is really simple but for some reason its one of my faves in my moley.

Its now time for me to make a cup of tea and watch underbelly, Ill be updating in a few days with a few knitted items that I've finshed and hand dyed and even embelished!
Im just over 16 weeks pregnant and feeling great, finally after weeks of feeling like death! my poor knitting pile didnt get touched!!

Enjoy your nights lovelies and I'll post again soon!

Things I'm Loving!

Jade and I have decided to post our weekly delights for you! Things we have bought, love, desire and can't live without!

So I'm up first this week so here we go...

This week I'm loving....

The Jane Austen Book Club... gorgeous movie, can't wait to read the book.

After seeing the film I couldn't help but go down to my local bookshop and purchase..

Whilst I was browsing the isles of the book shop I found a beautiful knitting book by Jo Sharp..

Once I have finishing the baby blanket I am knitting for my sister in law, I can't wait to try one of Jo's cute cardigans. Her books are beautiful quality with stunning photos and for $17.55 it was a bargain!

I'm also loving....

The new Real Living magazine, the beautiful art of Lovely Paper and the most amazing shop I have ever come across... Rose Harvest Antiques. Lucky for me its just down the road, but I urge anyone who lives in Melbourne and is looking for a weekend away to take a trip to Mildura, you won't regret it. This shop is like heaven for any collector, artist, crafter and creative being.

These are my loves for the week... Jade's turn next.

Much love stay tuned for more lovely things... Isobel x

Busy Days and Clutch Purses..

Well we have been so busy the last month (unfortunately not with crafty things) we have not had a chance to update. Well things are about to change..

I've now settled into my new job as a teacher and am trying to find a few extra hours in each day to play in my beautiful studio. Jade will hopefully be over the worst of her morning sickness soon and will be back to knitting like a crazy woman within a few weeks. With much hope and anticipation she will be coming to join me in my new little house in April which means many hours of Jade and Isobel craziness coming up really soon.

So my little weekend project was to play with the iron on interfacing I bought at Spotlight last week and I do so with great success making a very sweet clutch purse, perfect for day or night.

I am just in love with Lucky Kaeru Fabric and Supplies! I can't wait to buy some more of her beautiful fabrics.

Well thats all I have for now, looking forward to making more creations over the next weekend but for now I must go continue cooking dinner..

Much love and happy Monday

Miss Isobel's Heaven!

The lovely Isobel is on horrid dial-up at the moment, and dial up is allergic to blog loading, so I'm writing on behalf of her!

She has adventured into the land of Mildura to follow a cute little teaching job! I'm so proud of her.
This adventure has led her to move into a beautiful place and finally set up a stunning sewing room! I am totally jealous but I share her excitement, here are her beautiful pictures! Mosey on into her little seamstress chamber...

Such and adorable little nook, the knitter in me is in love with the teapot full of needles! I wonder if i have a teapot lying around...

Another little update while I'm thinking about it I may as well announce that I'm pregnant expecting our second little angel! which is one of the reasons I've been so unmotivated! too much morning sickness for this little crafter!

Thats all from us! enjoy your days lovelies!
