Say hello to Pippa !
Pippa has been lounging around in my sketchbook for a few years, as a little pencil doodle just waiting for her time to shine.
She thinks she would be the perfect gift for any lover of all things vintage.
Pippa has been hand embroidered by my own fair hand on gorgeous 1960’s pink and orange patterned vintage linen, that used to be a jacket which had sadly seen better days.
I have created the stitches using vintage DMC and Anchor threads.
In the traditional manner I have laced and stretched this embroidery over acid free mount board then framed it in a vintage gold frame without glass as it distorts the stitches.
The old frame measures 23cm x 18cm and is 2cm in depth.
Without the frame this original piece of art measures 17cm x 11.5cm.
Being vintage the frame has a few imperfections, it has already lived a long life, if only it could speak.
This piece of embroidery art has been made totally from vintage materials making it completely unique.
As this is a one off piece I will send it Royal Mail First Class signed for.
If you have a moment please take a look around my shop you may find a few more girls there.
Whilst sorting through my mountain of vintage fabrics I stumbled across a pile of Damask curtains and off cuts.
They have been waiting for me to turn them into something new for an age.
In the corner of the room I spied a box of vintage picture frames that I have collected over the years.
Then boom a flash of inspiration, there’s a few doodles of girls sitting in one of my sketchbooks just waiting to show themselves to the world.
That’s exactly how this piece of textile art came into being !
