I made this set of coasters using recycled atlases and chose the places I've lived in Australia for each one. I am planning to make a few sets of these. They make great conversation starters... (not that I really need that)

Here are some hand made bean bags for kids using some great fabrics. You can play lots of different games with these. I have made a batch for the markets and they are sold as singles or in sets of 4 tied with a raffia ribbon and in a gift bag with lots of game suggestions in the picture. A bright, colourful and original gift if you like good old fashioned toys and games. Single bean bags are $5.50 A set of 4 with the gift bag is only $20.

I love making these bags. They are made from the legs of preloved jeans, the bigger the size the better!! The insides are lined with designer fabrics and all have an inside pocket with applique. Don't throw out your old jeans, make a bag... Just about any old clothes can be used to make a bag and it's a great way to recycle something with sentimental value too, instead of throwing it out.

I've started making some more bags and this style is a great handbag size. Fully lined with internal pockets and a magnetic closure, the body is designer fabric and covered in PVC. These bags are approx 35cm wide and 25cm high. I won't be making any two bags exactly the same so you can be sure you will have a unique bag. Look out for some retro and hippy designs coming up!

This is a new shape of clutch purse, the zip is 18cm long and the measurement from the middle of the purse to the bottom of the curve is 10cm. It's big enough for a phone, keys and cards or you could use it as a makeup bag. This style of purse is covered on both sides with designer fabric (this one is Amy Butler) and a PVC coating.

I've just started making pendants again after a long break over the holidays. I am feeling motivated with the upcoming Pod Collective market at Breezes on the 5th April, so hope to have lots of nice things ready for that. These pendants are 1 inch square and using Chiyogami papers and glass tiles they are on 2mm black leather cord. These ones are $22.95 each
The other blue and green necklace features beads made from the Gladstone tourist map and which have been rolled and lacquered to make them hard and tough. This necklace also has turquoise and natural stone beads and Swarovski crystals.
