My friend Sarah Strachan and her wonderful dolls

I've a friend here in Totnes called Sarah Strachan and she's just started making these wonderful miniature dolls. Each one is a unique piece of art and they're utterly beautiful. Here are some photos of some of them.
She's got a blog which can be found here and has these dolls on her new etsy site here. I particularly love the one with long red hair, striped top and denim pinafore!

Pop art vintage fabric cushion and others

Here's a cushion I've made from some wonderful pop art 60s (or possibly 70s) fabric. I love the boldness and colours. The children holding balloons dates from the 70s and does the Dick Bruna fabric shown in the third photo. I shall be selling the pop art one on my cushion site here.

More vintage fabric finds by Jane Foster

I'm sorry for the lack of blog posts recently - have been incredibly busy leading up to Christmas. Here are some of my latest vintage fabric finds and a few cushions I've been making. The puppet fabric dates from the 50s and is by Jaqueline Groag.
