Early March my work was part of Leesa Chandler’s exhibition in the Cranbourne Botanical Gardens.  Leesa designs fantastic Australian fabric featuring Australian flora (as well as other amazing designs) and this goes so well with the Australian Gardens. My products also reflect Australian flora and fauna so I was very pleased to be part of the exhibition. The Walkers bags sold very well so Leesa will now sell the pattern in her fabric shop- Chandlers Cottage, Beaumaris. This Saturday ( April 26th 2014)  sees the launch of the patterns.
