Megan is made using a mixture of fabrics (silks, cottons, and synthetics) appliquéd to a canvas background. Each shape you see has been cut from fabric and attached, along with a mixture of embroidery threads and sewing cottons in many decorative embroidery stitches sewn on top of the pieces to decorate them. The eyes are re-purposed buttons from my collection, and I’ve added paints and pastels to shade and tint some of the parts. I’ve framed this piece using vintage silk fabric and backed it in cotton with wadding in between. She’s all ready to hang on a wall or door and hopefully brighten your days.
This piece measures approx. 38cm by 34cm
