Country Cushion

Had the urge to create a cushion today...
I used a lovely c1930's hand embroidered linen as the starting point...
And combined it with a collection of vintage floral fabrics. 
Perfect for the window seat in our cottage. 
I hope to make some more soon to add to the shelves of my folksy shop.

Inspired by the dainty wild violets growing in my garden...
I thought I'd make a new flower fairy to take care of them.

Violet is dressed in a vintage Sanderson cotton fabric, printed with violet posies. 
She has carefully chosen accessories to complete her costume. 
I am in the process of setting up a new folksy shop. I have just added Violet to its shelves. If you'd like to take a look, my new shop can be found here - I shall be adding lots more items over the next few days.

Fairy Rosa

I've been nestled inside my studio today and have created a new OOAK fairy doll. 
This is Rosa - Dressed in a rare C19th French cotton fabric, printed with faded roses on a buff background.  
Carefully chosen vintage and antique accessories finish her costume.
Sold - Thank You! 
I am in the process of moving my on-line shop from etsy to folksy. I shall add the details of my new shop to my blog soon, where you will find Rosa residing, looking for a new home.
