"Sewing Mends The Soul"
Made using English paper piecing in miniature elongated hexagons and hand embroidery, this little textile artwork is mounted on beer mats and measures just 3.75" square. I have incorporated sewing themed charms and recycled jewellery to make the piece and the total hanging length is 10.5"/27cm
This is a 'nothing wasted' piece, utilising tiny scraps of fabric saved from other projects, old mending threads, repurposed promotional beer mats and broken jewellery.
