Collaborate For A Cause - A Book Nook

This year's Collaborate for A Cause (C4AC) charity auction has just kicked off, and I wanted to share with you this awesome event and the collaboration that I have proudly taken part in this year.
In case you aren't familiar with C4AC, it's one of the highlights of the Australian hand-made calendar,  whereby hundreds of hand-maidens get together to make items which then get auctioned off over one weekend, with all proceeds going to charity. I have taken part in it since the early days of Down Grapevine Lane, and I love the buzz and excitement that surrounds the whole event. Seeing all the pretty things made by so many talented makers, and the hand-made community coming together for a good cause - it really is the best feeling in the world and I'm so proud to be a part of it.

Without further ado, here is the collaboration that I was part of: a 'Book Nook' curated by the lovely Fiona who is @fee_loves on Instagram. A true lover of 'hand-made', Fee has a real talent for putting together items to create little 'hand-made' heavens! She also took all the photos below under her new business Little M.E Images.

Don't you wanna curl up in there? The fabric is we used is the amazing Sommer collection by Sarah Jane Studios which was kindly donated by the fabulous Deanne from Fabric Pixie, a great Australian fabric store. Here are some close ups of the items that come in the set, and the fabulous businesses that donated them:
~ A hexagon quilt, hexie cushion and apple pie cushion by Piccolo Studio ~

Floor pillow by the Toffee Tree & doll face cushion by Blooms and Butterflies Doll Studio ~

~ Stunning dress by Ellie's Handmade ~

~ Dr Seuss wall art by Silent Little Whispers ~

~ Hair bow by Creative Butterfly Designs ~

~ Poodle book cradle by Bear and Sparrow ~

~ and finally, my contribution - a padded name bunting ~

All proceeds raised from the sale of this book nook set are going to Rett Syndrome Australia. Collaborate for a Cause album is here and you can find our collab here, make sure to read the description on the album first before you bid on anything, especially for buyers outside Australia. Bidding closes 8pm, Sunday 31 July. Also do check the rest of the album as there are some unbelievably stunning collaborations this year, and all for a good cause. Enjoy! :-)

  1. Hello Sedef! I follow you on Instagram. I am Kaleezim on IG. I am also a subscriber to your blog. Never would I have thought I would here another quilter who knew about Rett Syndrome! My granddaughter that occasionally will share on IG has Atypical Rett Syndrome. This whole idea is so amazing to me. I have often wanted to do some type of fund raising for Rett but doing a strollathon or giving a tea was more than I could imagine doing. I adore this idea and the design work is amazing and this is so beautiful. My granddaughter loves few things that other children like. She likes sweets, movies, swinging, and books. That is about it. Adore, adore adore! Thank you so much for making my day more beautiful!
