Collaborate for a Cause

I've been busy over the last couple of months. Doing something completely different! I teamed up with the ever so beautiful (nature, soul and person) Mel from Handmade by 3 Little Bs to create this collection for the Collaborate for a Cause auction. 

A little red with the complete range

Our chosen charity is Pregnancy Loss Australia formely Teddy Love Club (website and Facebook). Pregnancy Loss Australia is a national support program for bereaved families who suffer the loss of their baby or babies from miscarriage, stillbirth, termination for feotal abnormality and neo natal loss.

Our gorgeous volunteer 2 year old Red!
We selected Walk in the Woods by Aneela Hoey for Moda Fabrics to create a bedroom suite for a little girl who has grown out of that 'nursery' age or maybe even a little older. I love that it isn't all pink and flowery, the soft blues and greys really look lovely together with the pink and white.
Sprocket cushion and bunting
I made the quilt which will fit a single or king single with overhang or would lay flat on a double bed. It is 59 inches wide (about 150 cm) by 79 inches long (about 200 cm). Yes it is big!

Square cushion
Mel made the cushions and bunting. I love the beautiful square cushion as it shows the full design of the Little Red fabric. The Sprocket cushion is fantastic. Really shows off the grey, blue and grey fabrics - don't you think.

The bunting is made with just the pink fabrics and finished with vintage binding. Totally cute!
Quilt is made with 10 inch squares
And no Little Red bedroom range would be complete without your very own vintage Little Red Riding Hood books. These will be sent along with the quilt, square cushion, sprocket cushion and bunting.

I can't begin to tell you how proud I am of this little collection. I haven't done a quilt of this size before so it was certainly a challenge. I'm looking forward to making ones for my little owlets (both in progress!) and will both need to be a similar size. Huge!

It was an absolute pleasure working with Mel. We clicked on so many levels. Just naturally agreed what we wanted to do, what fabrics we loved and it all just went from there. Thank you beautiful girl x 

Thank you to Leanne Whitely Photography for taking these beautiful photos for us. Leanne is located in Echuca and available for wedding and portrait photos.

You can find our submission here. Bidding starts at 8 pm Friday 27 July and ends 8 pm Sunday 29 July. 

Wish us luck!
