Day 25: Giveaway Bonanza



I was fortunate enough to meet Melanie Hurlston (now Dekker) of Melly & Me fame last year when I went to a craft retreat in Daylesford, Victoria. She is a blast and I really loved spending the day with her, other designers and a whole bunch of friends. We were quickly tagged ‘the naughty table’ – a badge that we wore with pride I think!



Melly’s adventures in sewing began six years ago when she discovered, as an at-home mother, that she still had the desire to be creative and productive. Her passion for sewing quickly grew after her sister, RosalieQuinlan (man what a creative family that is!), encouraged her to give it a try, and only 12 months after starting to sew she began designing under the pattern label Melly & Me.

Melly’s goal was to develop a range of contemporary sewing patterns that included bright and quirky toys, wearable purses and lively, modern quilts. Her aim is to design items that are original, fun and achievable in a day, as well as being completely usable in everyday life.
She now designs fabrics as well – you may recognise her most recent ‘Toy Tales’ which is available now.



Features: Melanie's newest, as yet not released pattern! How exciting is that! Your chance to own one of the first 'Springtime Bloom' bag patterns valued at $15.00.
