I've been busy sewing softies again! I will be exhibiting my work as part of the Fiveways artists group in Brighton this May. Along with a group of other artists and makers, I'll be showing at 'Art at 80' (80 Havelock road BN1 6GF) -number 14 on the Fiveways trail.
All the toys I make are created from scrap fabrics left over from other sewing projects and some are vintage pieces which include some great prints.
I love the floral graphic print on this 1960s fabric. What started life as a teatowel, has been turned into sweetly scented bags filled with Yorkshire lavender. The towel's border has been stitched into hanging loops so they can be hooked over a hanger in the wardrobe to keep moths away and clothes gently fragranced. I love the way the fabric has a faded look but yet still retains that fun mid century graphic style.
