Part of the fun of making my Purses and Ipad Cases 
is choosing the beautiful fabrics to go inside them.

One of my favourite fabric design companies is
Monaluna is a textile & surface design company producing fresh, 
modern prints & organic cotton fabric.

When I discovered them a few years ago I contacted them 
to see if they had a stockist in New Zealand.
Luckily for us they do, it is

Owl and Hedgehog is run by the lovely Steph who is based in sunny Tauranga. 
Steph stocks a selection of the Monaluna fabrics.

I can tell you that these fabrics are just a joy to work with.
They are top quality. 

Here is one of my Ipad Cases with Monaluna fabric lining for you to see.

I just recently bought some of the 
Modern Home collection which I am looking forward to working with this coming week.

Where has she been?

I must apologise these school holidays have just run away on me.
We had family to stay and then Mr O took me away up North for 3 days.
In amongst it all my sewing basket was by my side and
I have been busily making Pixies , covers for Purses and Ipad cases.
Once I get my act together I will show you some pictures.

In the meantime here are a few pictures on my day trip to Keri Keri
and the lovely Stone Store and Kemp House.

Here I am all rugged up looking back at Kemp House.

Hopefully early next week they will all be in the store.
