Win a customised love seat from Freedom

Just in time for Valentines Day… win one of four customised love seats from Freedom! Four Australian artists (including me, eeep!) were given a bench seat from Freedom to get creative with. This is one of those secret projects I hinted that I’ve been working on this month. I started with the theme of a lovers’ secret garden and created a throw/loose upholstery, a huge tassel and did some weaving and wrapping on the love seat with copper thread. The fabric was digitally printed with a photo I took, then I painted on it and added some indigo and copper embroidery. I loved making this!

All you have to do to be in the running to win one of these gorgeous creations is enter the comp on Freedom’s Facebook page.

I was in amazing company with this project. The other three love seats were customised by Emily GreenLynes & Co and Georgia Perry.




I love, love the type on the love seat by Lynes & Co.

    PLL! This is sensational. Of course I love the seat in pink and red, but yours’ is DIVINE. I so want your fabric on my dining room table. Bonnie and Neil? Pah! I am now over fixating on their neon pink splashed tablecloth and I want yours’! Please. Make it a tablecloth (ideally with matching tea towels please) or a quilt cover or some gorgeous big cushions and I am logging on to buy IMMEDIATELY.

    Ironically I had been considering purchasing the loveseat for our front garden. I am SO doing it now!
