Market Wrap - Monkey Markets (Brighton)

Yesterday Ernie & Bird attended the launch market of Monkey Markets in Brighton. It was good to attend a market where I felt more at home and among friends rather than being the only 'new items' stall at the Baby & Kids markets where there are primarily secondhand good for sale and everyone there just want to grab $1 bargains!

I got to see so many amazing stalls yesterday and left feeling totally inspired and encouraged by all the positive feedback received! Considering I've had so many wholesale orders recently, I was a little concerned I didn't have enough stock but managed to sew up a few Hooties the day before so my table looked lovely and colourful! The Faith Hope Love jewellery range was also a hit! More details on that little project coming soon!!

New accessories range to brighten your day!

Ernie & Bird is pretty much know for sewing beautiful baby items but I've been feeling as though it was time for a change for a little while! Don't get me wrong... I'll still be making the ever-so-popular Hootie Owls but have decided with the change of season some bright accessories will be an ideal gift for birthdays and Christmas. Find these adorable pieces in the Ernie & Bird madeit store.

Behind the scenes... Father's Day

We've been away in Brisbane for the past few days and have had a lovely time! It's always good to get a break away from the sewing machine and recharge the batteries! We went to Australia Zoo north of Brisbane in Beerwah and I absolutely loved it! If you're ever up that way I highly recommend going - P had a fantastic time and even got to feed an elephant! It's such a hands-on place and the Irwin family have done a marvelous job at educating visitors about all the different animals in Australia and from around the world.

We spent Father's Day in the city and had a delicious meal down at Southbank where they have these fantastic man-made beaches for children to swim and play! What a great idea! Plus there were markets on so it was smiles all round! So P got to spend the day with her daddy, her daddy got to spend the day with his dad and I got to see my dad which was very special. I hope you all enjoyed your Father's Day however you spent it!
