Cute little folk owl's

Was so pleased with these little owl's. The printing was a wee bit of a pain but once it was put together they had a good feel about them. The pic's don't seem to pick that up. More print's to come I think. Being asked to do a skull cushion so have already started work on that. Enjoy.

More stag's

Some new stag heads, Being trying some new fabric out, and still trying to make the most of the design. Being trying to find new out lets for these little baby's. Will give the deer's a brake for a week or so, fancy trying some printing.

Deer trophy

Here's the original deer head trophy which has gone on to a couple of new deer's to date. The main fabric is cool vintage child's bed cover with childhood fairy tale's. There's a fair amount of symbolism but mainly irony in these head. Fairly difficult to make to one of my most esteemed.
