Description

This is a handmade machine stitched Reliquary.
Made from layers of fabric including silk and hand dyed Egyptian cotton.
The internal measurements are approximately 8" x 6"
The overall measurements are approximately 9" x 19"
The heart is approximately 3.5" x 5.5"
The flower is approximately 4" x 4"
A Reliquary tradionally kept religious relics, I prefer to see it as a place to store precious found or made objects.
This design is a wall hanging, with a gold cord to hang it from the back. I have used some of my favourite 3D designs, a heart, flower and leaves, also sewn onto the fabric are the same hearts, flowers and leaves.
The shelf at the bottom will not support very heavy objects.

Inspiration

I hand dye the majority of my fabrics. To hand dye my fabrics, firstly I have to wash the fabric and dry it. Then I mix up the dyes individually and add then to the fabric separately. The dyes will merge into one another over the next 6 hours or so that I have to leave the dyes in order for them to take to the fabric. I usually do this overnight so that I am not tempted to look before they are done. I rinse out the fabric to get rid of the excess dye and then wash it again in the washing machine. Then depending on the weather is will line dry or tumble dry the fabric. It is now ready for me to work with.
