From the heart of Australia’s wild west, These two deeply fabulous dames were alphabetically destined to be best of friends… They first met in 8th grade form class in 1996 and have been inseparable ever since! A mutual passion for artisan handmade goods, fabric, vintage, illustration and general prettiness has seen the pair combine forces as “two crafty dames”, their humble (and creative) abode on the interweb.
Carly has a real passion for vintage fabrics and fashion while she is a seamstress at heart, she also has a keen interest in creating digital art with a retro feel. Carly has a particular fondness for creating aprons, which stems from memories of the practical pinnies her Mum used to wear when cooking up a storm in the kitchen.
An aspiring jewellery artist, Paula’s crafty endeavors also include fashion and textiles. Underlying Paula’s work is a zest for promoting positive, vibrant female role models and body image. Paula also runs her own successful freelance design & illustration business Calypso Designs from her crooked blue house.
