Happy Camping - appliqué in a mackerel tin

Happy Camping - appliqué in a mackerel tin

Love this


A little scene of camping next to the beach in a beautiful Bell Tent, made with appliqué and stitch and framed in a recycled mackerel tin that has been washed (!) and then collaged with an old map page - this one shows the Norfolk/Suffolk coast.
The tin measures approximately 6 x 11 x 3 cm, with the Happy Camping sign it is 11cm high.


This is one of a series of tin can pieces I have made - I even run workshops in how to make them! The idea is that the tin can becomes the frame for the textile appliqué and they look lovely displayed on a book shelf or mantlepiece - tempting you to take a little holiday!
This one shows a beautiful bell tent waiting invitingly, by the beach for you to slip inside and relax - there's even a bottle of wine waiting for you!
This piece is made to fit in a mackerel tin. I have covered the tin with a collage from an old map of the Norfolk/Suffolk coast. I've also added a stitched message by piercing the tin and putting wire supports through it. The grassy effect spills out from the edge of the tin, leading you in towards that bell tent.
