12 Days of Christmas Giveaway - Day three

Mellie Lang recently moved to the Sunshine Coast from the UK, where she was a clothing designer. With a creative dream and notebooks full of designs, she left her day job to set up a studio in her house, where she could indulge her passion as a designer and maker. Here she puts her love of natural materials to work on her knitting machines.



Mellie's work combines a love of nature with a conscious commitment to using only sustainable and environmentally friendly materials. From wool to packaging, each item Mellie sources needs to suit these requirements and wear well over many years.


This beautiful cushion, A Partridge and A Pear, was inspired by the traditional Christmas song Twelve Days of Christmas. It seemed the perfect choice for today's giveaway.

For the opportunity to win this beautiful cushion, which retails at $45, leave a comment below telling us your favourite thing about the Christmas season. Open Internationally. The giveaway will be drawn tomorrow morning.

You can find out more about Mellie Lang, or purchase her beautiful designs, by clicking over to her shop or blog.

Let's support our local talented crafters this Christmas!

  43. What lovely designs Mellie has done :-) I love decorating the house and so many of my decorations have 'stories' to tell...such as the ones made by my daughters when they were little or the ones DH and I bought on my first trip OS. Another favourite part of Christmas is when the family gathers on Christmas Eve ...

  45. I adore all the different aromas that Christmas brings: crushed pine needles, the "green" smell of holly and poinsettias, mince pies and the plethora of baking goodies, cinnamon, the smell of drying clothes and melting snow - it really is quite intoxicating!

    This year will be all the better as it'll be S's first real Christmas, last year he was too small to appreciate all the twinkly lights and excitement - this year he'll be chomping on mince pies like crazy!
