The luggage tags are fabuous. If I were lucky enough to win them I would use wonderful Australian designed fabric. I think that would be a great way to show off our country.

    Colourque (R) is a techique I developed and use on many of my projects. It is nothing scientific, anyone can do it, it is meant to be fun and easy to do... it is simply using coloured pencils on fabric to get an applique effect. 'Faux Applique' a comprehensive technique book on the method is due for release late November. Watch this space!
