Lynn had seen some of my other patchwork armchairs on my website. She had two comfortable armchairs that needed a facelift. She wanted something in bright colours with a lot of pink blue and orange.
I had some help from the lovely Anna from Brighton Upholstery too as I had never done deep buttoning before. This was the outcome
If you want to know what it looked like before, here it is!
Here are the latest collection of our upcycled vinyl fascinators.
Modeled by the lovely Sharon. All available apart for the egg. I’m keeping that one for myself!
High Waisted Shorts.
I wanted to make a flattering pair of high waisted shorts. A pattern that would work with various prints and colours. The buttons are what makes it I think!
Modeled by the beautiful Leah and Lottie, plus myself.
Can be made to order to your specific measurements in desired fabric/colour.
Even though feathers are natural and completely biodegradable they aren’t always ethical. Some birds, like the peacock are sometimes bred just for their feathers and in some places plucked alive. Chickens/cockerel or game feathers tends to be a side product of the meat industry. Which is not very ethical either, but still a waste product. So always worth taking into consideration where your feathers come from. Check out Feathered Fantasy for example. Stylish and sustainably sourced.
This beautiful old feather duster made from cockerel feathers came my way through Shabitat. All the feathers were hand threaded one by one and then rolled around a wooden stick to create the duster.
I unraveled the feather thread and cut off small lengths, glued them onto alligator clips and added vintage buttons. Simple yet effective.
