On the cover of Homespun

This week was the most thrilling and proud week for me. I had my first magazine feature published in Homespun (leading Australian crafts magazine for those overseas). And not just published but actually on the COVER of the magazine - squeal!!

Homespun cover Sprinkles 1

Remember my french knot Easter bunny project? Back in March I got contacted by the editor of Homespun magazine after they saw it on Pinterest. They had loved the concept and wanted to commission a piece using the same french-knot-sprinkles technique. After some brainstorming and a little graphic design we finalised the drawing - an umbrella and a pair of gum boots.

I took pictures at each step during construction so it could be turned into a full photo tutorial for the magazine.

The article has a little profile piece on me and Down Grapevine Lane as well.


The September issue of Homespun magazine is now in the shops, if you wanted to get a copy of the project tutorial for yourself!

  3. Bak yaa yazacaktım geçen hafta sana, işler yüzünden yine yazamadım.
    Geçen hafta online dergilere bakıyordum ipad'a satın almak için, Homespun'un kapağını görür görmez senin olduğunu anladım ve hemen satın aldım. Gerçekten harika, aslına bakarsan derginin en güzel kısmı senin sayfaların. Ellerine sağlık, canı gönülden kutluyorum.
    Sen ne iş yaparsa yapsın mutlaka en iyisini yapıp başarıyı hak eden nadir insanlardan birisin.
    Çok öpüyorum...
