Pin Cushion

Ever thought of blankets as an art item? I've begun making a pin cushion out of a strip of blanket. It's a work in progress with so much scope from the humble nurturing blanket. #Cushies


I’ve always been interested in taking fragments from the past and integrating them into the present. Flour bags have been used by previous generations. 

This pair of size 1 shorts were made by my mother for my brother. She has used a pair of my Dad’s cut down trousers and the lining is an old flour bag. Such versatility and the price, nothing.

This pile of flour bags are about to get a new life.
