Frida Faces





In between custom orders and commissions,
 I have updated the shop with a few new Frida Kahlo brooches.
These are one of my favourite things to make, 
with their free motion sewn faces, wool rug and fabric flowers and bead earrings.
Each one comes in its own fabric covered box, so that you can keep them safe between wears!

(I've also added a couple of new Prince brooches too)




More VIPs

Edith Cowan

Frida Kahlo

David Bowie

A few more VIPs to add to the list from my last post!
The more difficult dolls to make are to come..

Very Important People

Harvey Milk

Malala Yousafzai

Bob Brown

Eddie Mabo

Here are a few of the dolls I've been working on for an installation at The Museum of Australian Democracy later this year. I am making 3 of each, so it is taking a while!
I'll share the other VIP dolls with you as I finish them.

Wool rug koalas






At last - some new wool rug koalas!
Its been such a long time since I have made these guys.
Their faces are free motion sewn and they are all one of a kind!




Wearable Cacti






The latest cacti brooches are now in the shop, 
with some new pink cacti too!

Walking in the air :: new Prince doll







Its taken a long time to find the right fabric, and it has come from a long way away!
But at last it arrived for me to make this new Prince doll!
He wears the cloud suit he wore in his Raspberry Beret video
and has a free motion sewn cloud guitar.

*This guy has sold, but I have now put up another in the shop!x

Frida Kahlo textile art








I've eventually got these Frida Kahlo wall hangings in the shop!
The backing fabrics are really textured and bright, making them even more 3D.
Frida's face is free motion sewn so they are all different.
Three of them are based on Frida's self portraits.
