Hello and welcome to Retro Bird Designs. I'm Melinda, a "trying to stay at home Mum" of one beautiful daughter. She's my Sunshine and constant source of inspiration. She's also my biggest critic. If she doesn't wear it or play with it without proudly exclaiming, "Mummy made it!" then it's just not worth making.
I am obsessed with fabrics and the need to make them into beautiful and useful things. I live by the quote "If it's not beautiful or useful, than it has to go!" (I don't know who said it, but I agree whole-heartedly).
My motivation is to make things that I find beautiful and useful, hopefully, you will find them to be that too.
