pear shaped!

A few weeks ago, I had an idea for something a bit different to take to The Finders Keepers Market. I have admired Brenda's work for some time now, and wondered if she would make her gorgeous pears with my linen. She (thankfully) agreed and this was the result ...





I just love them!! Two sets of pears in each colourway (on natural linen) will be available at The Finders Keepers Market in about 10 days time. I also couldn't resist showing you how beautifully Brenda packaged up her pears to send to me. What a great idea to use old sewing patterns - looks brilliant with the red and white string - my kind of packaging!


Have a great day!

They look stunning Nic! What a great idea:) I love the ones on the second picture as this fabric is my favourite! I think I finally found a perfect Liberty fabric to match and will make one of my baskets with this print:)

Have fun at the market!

I loved these pears when I saw them on Brenda's site in plain fabrics.. but this is a really great twist. It's that agapanthas print - it works every time!

Well as a lucky unwrapper of parcels from both you & Brenda at Shop Handmade, you both wrap things up beautifully & we saviour opening the boxes. The patterns are a lovely touch, so sorry i toss out so many patterns last time i moved, silly silly!!
Back to the pears & your fabric, of course, fantastic work, love Posie

Those are amazing! Simple but so unique! I wish I had two pairs of pears :)

Oh fantastic! Love these pairs of pears (ok, they're threesomes but hey). I just realised I might be in Melbourne on the right weekend for the market, off to check my diary now!
