The Dormouse

DSC00136

Celebrating the 150th birthday of Alice, these quirky wall hangings make a great gift for the curious minded.

These Wall Mounted Animal Heads are handmade, using various felts and british standard padding. As the name suggests these Feltsidermy are created using mainly felt. Each head is filled with wadding and is backed onto a foam disc giving each head a nice backing board and will hang neatly onto the wall with a small loop on the back.

The Dormouse is complete with hand made artistic gold finish wire glasses.

All materials used are vegan friendly and kind to the environment, the felt itself is made from recycled plastic bottles.

Well, here it is the finished Re-mixed Dimensions collection. I’m so happy with these final pieces, there’re all very different but sit well together. Constructed textiles are amongst my favourites due to how tactile you can make them.

I have to give a hugh thank you to Catherine who modelled for me, she looks amazing.

Made to be adorned

Experimented with including sleeves on the body, this sits well on the body using felt works well as it holds its shape when manipulated.

EXPERIMENTAL ADORNMENT

DSC00199 DSC00197

After initial researching of all the various things I found influential for this project. I started playing with adornment of my own, using different weighted and textured materials and making each piece individually, decorating them by hand or with a sewing machine and arranging each piece onto a stand to create a silhouette  I like, then sewing all the various pieces together by hand, so that it may be worn on the body.

This particular piece was made during the final year of the FDA in Textiles and Fashion I studied, It was so much fun playing with ideas and pieces of fabric to create something to adorn the body, so I thought why not include it here.

Doodles

This is a quick ink doodle to show shape on the body, I’m hoping over the next couple of days to make the final pieces and do a photo-shoot.

These are some constructed textile experiments I’ve played with, I’m quite happy with them and I’ve used a wide range of methods these are fun to make and if you haven’t tried felting before I highly recommend it.

Making Impressions.

 20130804_163234

Over the last week I’ve been playing with constructed textiles and thought I’d try laying brass buttons in a dish of latex (so much fun!) It took about 3 days to dry out and when I removed the buttons the latex had imprinted the pattern and taken the colouring from them. Now I can cut them up and use them as buttons.
