Collaborate for a Cause

Collaborate for a Cause is back again, and this year I am representing Lil Pip in two collaborations.

Collaborate for a Cause is a fabulous charity auction run each year in which handmade businesses around Australia team up to create amazing packages that are auctioned off for various charities.

Last year over $48,000 was raised!

This year Lil Pip joined with Ana Ma Petit TresorKolo KoLetter It (Name Decorative Art) and love b to raise money for Heartfelt.

This gorgeous collaboration features various pink and blue Tilda fabrics, used to create three size 3 garments, a piece of wall art, and a very special Lil Pip dolly. Mimsy is modelling our collaboration, she has just turned three and only just going into size three. The clothing is a generous fit on her.

This pretty little dolly is lovingly named Emiliana in memory of Emiliana Harris, a gorgeous little girl who's photos were recently captured by Heartfelt. She features 100% wool felt hair and shoes, cotton face, Tilda cotton clothing, ribbon laces and a hand painted face. Emiliana contains small parts (buttons) and as such she is not suitable for children under the age of three.

Emiliana is made using a pattern from A Bit of Whimsey.

The collaboration also includes:

 Size 3 lounge pants from love b.

Size 3 peplum top from Kolo Ko.

 Size 3 Bay dress from Ana, Ma Petit Tresor

Wall art from Letter it (Name Decorative Art)

It was so lovely to collaborate with these other businesses, and an honour to raise money for such a wonderful charity. Please see the Collaborate for A Cause page for all of the terms and conditions of the auction, as well as how to register as a bidder.


  1. What a stunning little model you have! :-) Immie is a dream!

    Beautiful work as always Bridie, and one of the best causes. Heartfelt is a truly amazing organisation. The photographic memories they capture of babies and children who are seriously ill or have passed away are absolutely priceless gifts that parents can treasure forever. It can not be underestimated how healing these precious memories are to bereaved parents and siblings.

    Thank you for naming your doll after our precious Emiliana. It is so lovely to see her name written again, and again. xxxx
