Gorgeous new things at l'uccello

We just had to share this gorgeous new sewing box that has recently been made in the l'uccello studio... It is made using beautiful blue and white fabrics from French General and of course was designed by l'uccello and hand made right here in Melbourne.


 And while we are on the subject of French General we have also received new stock of their divine collection of fabrics 'La Fete de Noel'. They are available in store and on line as fat quarters
We think they are divine!




And if you are after some bias binding we have some new stock made from premium quality cottons and fabric from Liberty of London. Just beautiful!
