I made a little man for Strudel, who turned one recently. Like Strudel, he needs some coaxing in order to walk. I realised while I was making him that he is almost entirely made up of scraps of fabric that I kept from my old work places. (Years spent in the fashion industry have their advantages.) The knitted front panel is my work. If you have been reading this blog for a while you might recognise it.
He was inspired by a Czech book cover which I pinched fromFine Little Dayand stuck in my scrapbook, above. Please excuse the dismal i-phone shot.
Strudel loves faces, so I made her a little digitally printed cushion too. Happy Birthday, Noodle!
This blog is both a record of my work and an attempt to contribute to the vast inspiration that thousands of other creative people have given me via the internet.
I worked for many years in the fashion industry, designing prints, textiles and developing products for children. I now work as a freelance illustrator and make a variety of work under my own name. Some of the things that I make can be found in my etsy shop and in galleries and stores around Australia.
