Fabric designed by Melissa Bombardiere

I was the lucky recipient of some excellent hand printed fabric after putting my name down in a giveaway hosted by Melissa from Mel Bomba.

Normally, I wouldn't enter a giveaway for fabric as sewing is not my forte, however when I saw these wonderful designs I was compelled to enter.

Fabric: Green bell bird design and blue lily design

Sydney-based Melissa is a graphic designer by profession. Her print designs and patterns are inspired by her obsession with vintage fabrics.

For me, her prints have a distinct Scandinavian flavour and are somewhat reminiscent of Figgjo Flint Norway ceramic designs which I love, love, love. (I owe this to some Norwegian ancestry from Mum's family in Tahiti - those Nordic explorers!)

So, I have plans for my new fabric. Something pretty for my room, I think.

Thank you, Melissa!
