meet my fabric: "circa"

The second of my yardage designs, this one is very personal to me. I came up with this circle motif right after visiting the Melbourne Stitches and Craft Show last year and being inspired to get more creative. I called it my signature circle as I went on to use it as part of my branding, but I'm calling this repeat pattern Circa ...


As my ideas developed and turned into Yardage Design the business, I held onto a small dream of one day seeing this pattern hand printed onto lovely fabric. Last Friday was the day I realised that dream and ticked a box on my personal "to do" list - it felt great.


This design comes in two colourways: navy blue on natural linen/cotton, and deep red on off white hemp/organic cotton.


Both colourways of this design will be available in fat quarters (approx 70cm x 50cm) at the Melbourne Stitches & Craft Show. You will be able to buy this fabric in my online shop after the show.

Thanks so much for the lovely comments about Swizzle - they were much appreciated! See you tomorrow for another design.

Congratulations on making the dream come true and in such a short time. I wonder what big dreams will come from being on the other side of the desk at this years show????

Love the circles - they're amazing all together... couldn't help but notice the optical illusion I got with the second picture.. as I moved my eyes the dotted circles seem to rotate slightly... wierd but doesn't lessen the loveliness of the design... good luck at the show!!
