Dandigami lotus flower

After many requests from you all since the show here are the easy to follow folding instructions to make your very own lotus flower, or download a PDF version. More images of the lotus dandigami napkins can be found here. Happy folding !. Until the end of September every order of paper napkins from the website will receive a set of 5 dandigami instructions so your table setting will never be dull. The lotus flower is just a teaser!

The big hit at the Stitches & Craft show was our Dandicraft. Everyone loved the Do It Yourself kits including the Fabric Mobiles and Treasure Box kits.

Thank you to the many customers who bought the Treasure box kits. A popular suggested use was to make their own wedding bonbonniere, pop a little chocolate inside and you have a lovely thank you gift to all your guests. We think they also look cute in little clusters.

Another dandicraft which received a great response were our DIY mobile kits. The tactile fabric pieces of the mobile will brighten up any corner of your home. You can choose colour ways to suit your space and mix and match shapes and lengths to get the look you're after. The finished look is so stunning, and it couldn't be easier to make!

The DIY kits have everything you need to get started including, detailed instructions, folding / cutting templates and dandi fabric swatches. The DIY kits aren't available through our online store just yet, watch this space for more information or send us an email.

Living Creatively / Stitches and Craft show

The Dandi girls are now back from the Stitches and Craft show. We had a wonderful few days amongst some of Australia's best crafters. Over the next few weeks we will be doing posts on these fantastic brands, all of which were our neighbours in beautifully set out Living Creatively area. For those who didn't make it to the fair just check out how gorgeous it looked. The team at Living Creatively had a garden display, complete with fabric cabbages and little felt cake treats. And who could forget the 2 little bunnies hopping around - too cute !
