Back in fashion

This last week has been a little stressful when it comes to blogging! I – thinking I was doing the right thing- tried to update the software that I use for this blog but instead ran into a few problems. Hence, I haven’t posted anything for nearly a week. Don’t think I’ll be trying that again for awhile.

I have another textile postcard to show. This one was created for the theme ‘Fashion’.

The interesting thing about this postcard challenge was seeing the wide variety of interpretations that the participants brought to the challenge. The one word Fashion is quite broad and can be used in so many contexts.
My card portrays three little paper dolls that many of us would have made when children. We would cut them out of folded paper so that they were all joining hands, and we could make little dresses in whatever fashion we liked. The dolls here were made out of white scrim, appliqued down and free-hand stitched to the background. Each of the dolls thinks she is very fashionable in her own right!
