Australian Custom Printed Fabric

So you're looking for fabrics printed in Australia? For a long time, so was I.
And now I've discovered a fantastic printer located in Melbourne who offer a range of natural fiber fabrics (and a few synthetic fabrics) ideal for many of the items I regularly sew including my cot quilts, play mats and baby blankets. Also available: beautiful cotton Voile ideal for blouses, dresses and lightweight skirts (though you'll need some lining or wear a slip - unless you like to show off your fancy handmade knickers too) Sateen & Poplin are great for dresses too!  Check out the fabric descriptions below. I'll add more pics in coming weeks.

If you would like to order fabric by the metre printed with any of my 1700+ designs, here is the info you need about each fabric type.
These fabrics are now available from my Etsy shop and will soon be available on my website. In the meantime please contact me for custom orders and be sure to include your shipping address if you would like a quote for shipping cost within Australia.
