It’s been almost a couple of years since I first did Pitch Your Portfolio (and I’m keen to go through it again this year for a refresh), so I wanted to share my experiences since finishing the course. Firstly, what is Pitch Your Portfolio? It’s a course taught by surface designer Shannon McNab that’s aimed at designers who have a portfolio of work

I worked with a new local Melbourne business Iseult, who have created a range of organic cotton tote bags and dish cloths in two of my floral designs. My favourite is the roomy shopping tote bag, which lined inside with fabric that will hold jars (for those who like to BYO their own jars to refill produce at bulk stores) as well as

If you've never used a handkerchief before, then you're missing out! I've been using one for the last couple of years and they have had a fair bit of use over the years for many other things other than runny noses. Think of a cloth to wipe wet or sticky hands or something to wipe down a wet bike seat. It's so handy

Emily from Bravery Co.'s story and the stories she shares are ones of incredible bravery. Cancer has touched so many of us, including in my own extended family. I’m honoured to have had the opportunity to collaborate on a scarf design with Bravery Co. and hope this print can bring a bit of light and hope into the lives of these warriors

My upcoming fabric collection with Cloud 9 Fabrics was featured in the August 2021 edition of the American Quilt Retailer Magazine. This is the very first time I have a full collection of prints available on quilting fabric. After many years of designing pattern collections - I've rarely licensed more than 1 or 2 prints at a time - so to have

I feel like this year has been a bit of a culmination of years of hard work to get my designs out on fabrics. I first discovered patterns through fabrics and have spent many hours (and dollars) buying metres of fabric - just to collect, rarely with an intent to use it! I first met Nerida Hansen at Finders Keepers Melbourne market

When I first started dabbling in surface design, I had a few dream clients on my radar and Cloud 9 Fabrics was definitely one of them. They have always had such a beautiful and curated selection of designs and some of my favourite designers have had fabric collections through them. One of the other big things I love is that their fabrics are

JumJum Nappies are a small business out of Queensland that make beautiful cloth and swim nappies among other baby products. Even though it's been a long time since I've had a change a nappy, using Chux (as my reusable wet wipes) and cloth nappies were just a couple of the ways I tried to reduce the amount of waste from my own

Being in lockdown again now feels like the new normal, but I have to say each time it happens it doesn’t get any easier. But the release of this new collaboration with Art x Scrubs has lifted my spirits! ? I have so much respect and gratitude to all the health professionals doing their jobs day in and day out, putting themselves at

Spotlight has been on my wish list for years (literally years, we're talking more than 5 years). I have pitched to Spotlight on a few occasions, but the work has never been quite right for them so it feels a tad surreal to finally have some prints in such a well known fabric store. For those of you outside of Australia, Spotlight
