Sewn Picasso portraits



 









I have been wanting to try this for ages.
Sewing some of Picasso's famous paintings
(as well as a painting of him, by one of his mistresses).

They are available now in my Etsy store as brooches!

Iris







These are tiny little sewn faces, where I've tried to get the look of Iris Apfel.
I might make the glasses a little bigger next time, but they're getting there!
They are one of a kind and come in a fabric covered box.


The Sign




I have made The Sign guitar before, to go with some Prince dolls.
But this time I've made them a bit smaller, so that they can be worn as brooches!
They are backed with two layers of stiffened felt so that they don't bend easily.

Blue






This custom order was something a bit different.
I was asked to make a textile art of a book cover for the author's birthday!
I used free motion sewing and also fabric paint for the leaves, eyes and lipstick.
It was alot of fun to do, but very time consuming!

Eye eye





 




Back into the makes - here are the eye brooches I've been working on!
I did some handsewn eyes while I didn't have my sewing machine. 
But know I have it back again, these ones are free motion sewn of course!
There are a few left in the shop - all one of a kind..

Move







Hello!
Well I think that was the longest break I have ever had from my blog!
We moved countries (again), back to England..
After 3 hotels, and 2 Air Bnbs

It has taken us a long time to find a rental, as we bought our black cat with us.
Nearly all rentals here do not like pets - even though he is an indoor cat!
So we have eventually found somewhere, but it is very small - 
so most of our things are in the garage!

No pantry, dishwasher or sewing room/studio.
I have been doing some hand sewing and have now started machine sewing again too, 
so will post that soon!xx

Frida and Diego ornaments!










It looks like these will be the last makes for me this year.
I'm not sure when I'll get my sewing machine back again in the New Year, 
as we are moving overseas again..

These little Frida and Diego ornaments are SO much fun to make!
You can buy them seperately or I have coupled some together in little gift boxes.
Great stocking fillers or for under the tree.xx
