Kelly Doust has been scouring flea markets and charity stores for vintage fashion, fabrics and homewares from her early teens, and making and reinventing things in her own trial-and-error way since she was a girl. Her favourite things, in no particular order, are tea, clothes, friends, home, crafternoons, and her husband and daughter. Previously Kelly worked in book publishing and public relations in Sydney, Hong Kong and London, and as a freelance writer. She currently writes for Australian Women's Weekly and Vogue. For favourite suppliers, further crafting projects and workshop information, please visit Kelly's website and blog at www.thecraftyminx.com.au.
