Fern Fairy

“I know a bank where the wild thyme blows,
Where oxlips and the nodding violet grows,
Quite over-canopied with luscious woodbine,
With sweet musk-roses and with eglantine.”

“If we shadows have offended,
Know but this and all is mended.
That you have but slumbered here,
While these visions did appear,
And this weak and idle theme,
No more yielding, but a dream.”
William Shakespeare ~ A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Feed the birds….

I’ve recently finished making some fabric birds and while I was making them I would constantly hum the tune ‘Feed the birds’ from Mary Poppins, so I thought it would be fitting to showcase the birds in a special Mary Poppins photo shoot and here are the images.mary poppinsmary poppins blog3 blog4 blog5 blog6 blog7 blog8 blog9 blog10 blog11 blog12The birds are styled on the Starling, so the body shape and details echo elements of this bird.  Each bird is made from textile fabric and the body is machine stitched.  The wings and eyes are hand sewn and the birds each have a yellow Fimo clay beak and wire legs so they can stand unsupported.  The birds are available to purchase through my website and also in my Etsy shop x
