EVERYTHING IS COMING UP HEARTS!
Here are some of my hand made bags / totes from antique English Quilts and 1930's 40's Eiderdown fabrics which I have enhanced with creative embroidery.
Having been sorting out my workroom for the last week, I am now coming up for air and realise the problem is much worse than I thought!!
I have unfinished heart samples all over the place and vintage cutter quilts waiting for me, half given up hope on me ever reinventing them again into something wonderful.
Over the past few years I have sold quite a few home accents including bags and cushions. But having decided to pursue a City and; Guilds in Textile Art and Design I then ended up with pile of projects on hold.
Below are a few of my commissions including this huge cushion cover and bucket bag. They are all made with vintage and antique fabrics and quilts.
I like to included applique hearts on the totes and cushions because hearts are a sign of love and a lot of love went into the product.
I always promised myself I would make myself some huge cushions and a quilt so having unearthed all these smaller projects that is what I will do.
I'VE GOT PILES MORE THINGS TO SORT!
Here is a taster of some Textile Art Work.
Both are a water theme. The first is microscopic snowflakes using image transfer on linen and a lot of stitch incorporated within a light box.
This vase is made with silk and silk waste using a technique called acetate & acetone.
