Sewing my own clothes, making fabric toys, teaching textiles and drawing with stitch
linen and hand dyed silk unicorn softies
December 1, 2018
One of my favourite textile projects is designing and making soft toys based on my own doodles and sketches..
You can't help but notice that unicorns are everywhere on kids products- toys, accessories, stationary.. In fact they seem to have been a trend for the last few years and are still going strong, so I thought I'd come up with my own version using fabrics from my stash!
I found a selection of silk samples that I had dip dyed a few years ago on a fabric dyeing workshop. In contrast, the sturdy and textural bright white linen was my choice for the bodies. A bit of hand embroidery for the face and some child friendly chunky beads along with a silver sparkly horn completes these dreamy characters!
