Cakes.....From 2D to 3D

Moving forward i wanted to make the cakes more lifelike, fun for children to touch and play with, for pretending and imaginative games. I made cakes out of card and making very simple patterns began to reproduce them in lovely bright fabrics.
Although i love these, they are not incorporating the digital print that i want. I also feel that maybe some need to have more of a function....maybe childrens furniture to go in the play tents?

Christmas Fair

I joined forces with Rowena Ardern for the weekend before Christmas and we had a stall at the Christmas Fair at Jubilee Wharf, Penryn a beautiful Eco-Building by the waters edge at Penryn, Cornwall.

I produced 3 clocks and a load of brooches to try to make a bit of money for Christmas and was more than pleased with the results.

This was one of my photographs which led onto the acrylic laser cut brooches. The brooches and clocks are available on my Etsy store.

Play Dens

This is a very rough image of what i'm trying to acheive, from the outside the playhouse will look like the birdhouses but inside will be like a teahouse.

Whilst looking for Emily Dysons shop Couverture i came across a few beautiful childrens shop's on Kensington Road. One had gorgeous hand appliqued play dens in the window. I keep looking but still no digitally printed ones.

1950's Aprons

Aprons inspired by the 1950's by MALPHI. These are gorgeous and look great to wear everyday. If i had longer legs i would buy their bloomers....delicious.
I think i'll make some aprons with a digital twist.
