i thought i'd show you a sneak peak at what i've been working on. this range of kids & mums stuff (under the label of holi goddess) is all made from vintage, recycled & thrifted fabrics. i came across 4 metres of brand new linen in my favorite op shop & became quite fond of its earthy colour, it reminded me of our paper bark tree on the nature strip. so i sorted through my fabric collections to come up with a colour palette that resembled the tree. i have almost completed the range & will soon be available on made it & etsy.

designed for lots of cuddles, the skittle shape is easily tucked under the arm for safe carrying around & with a Steiner approach of being genderless they will entertain for years
measuring 35cm x 15cm, varying in size slightly by a cm or 2, makes each cobber a true individual.
made from vintage fabrics with new calico backing & polyfil
All Cobbers are hand made with lots of love & dedicated to my nana for her fabulous collection of fabrics & “COBBER” my grandpa.

i have gazed at all these fabrics for a while now, used some of them and some i just cant bring myself to cut. UNTIL NOW................COBBERS are here and they will be in the masses, due to the apron quantity
WHY cobbers?........that was my grandpas name. NANA & COBBER, so i think that it is very fitting that i make these sweet lil lovies out of my nanas aprons and name them all COBBER!!!!
MAMA MADE THAT! is one of Ninas most common phrases if she is ever asked where did you get that from. So a new name was born to accomodate all the kidi stuff i now do. The picture came from hours of fiddling around on the computer with a photo of the bag that i made for my mum. not quite sure if i like it yet, needs more work or i'll come up with something else.
this was just another logo that i was playing around with from the same photo. although i think it works best for holi goddess. it has that indian thing going on.
ahhhhhhhhhhhhh.......................thats better, so now you know my dilema, which really isnt one at all because i love what i do.
