This is on a gold cord so you can wear it around your neck when in use, very handy if like me you’re always losing them under a pile of fabric!

Alphabet Letters

I have been working on a series of letters, I have a love of typography as well as sewing.

I have decided to sew them all together to make a wall hanging IMG_20170416_100122_849.jpg

And in the future I may add more letters or numbersIMG_20170416_100149_399.jpg

But for now, it is finished, it took months to makeIMG_20170416_100220_516.jpg

I may enter it into the festival of quilts this summer, so it can be seen by thousands……IMG_20170416_100244_754.jpg

I have also made the letters up into kits, for you to make your own letters, these are available now in my Folksy shop. Each individual letter is approximately 5″ square  https://folksy.com/shops/SueTrevorIMG_20170409_111702_011.jpg

 

Textile Jug

Here’s my latest piece of work.

Seven sided jug with a botanical flower and leaf design,

A spout at the top and a lovely swirly handle.

This took a long time to make and I had several ideas along the way which changed the look of the jug, the most notable being the swirly handle.

Textile watering can

IMG_20160911_093415.jpg

I don’t know who invented the 1st watering can, they seem to have been around since the 17 century.

However, this is my modern textile veiws on it, life size, it seems to be right with my work,especially as I use flowers and leaves so much in my designs.

Hope you like it 😊
