3D Textile Sculptures


I've been experimenting with heavy weight interfacing to make these 3D textile sculptures. I'm still perfecting the technique and I hope to do a proper tutorial soon. They are made with fabric and paper scraps overlain by organza and free motion embroidery. In the larger piece some of the organza has been burnt away with the heat gun. The pieces are then further embellished with cords, buttons and hand stitching before being assembled into the sculpture. The points at the top are wired to allow them to be curled and repositioned.












Recycled Cardboard Journals


These A5 size journals are made from pieces of cardboard packaging. They both have loads of texture made from texture paste applied through a stencil. After they were painted with acrylics they were embellished with fabrics, charms and ribbon. The metal key charms keep the journals closed.
