Good oldies deserve a second life: well used jeans gave the  inspiration  for Tripper. The cap gives the little rascal an extra attractive look. In his leather bag an ini-mini children’s book and some cards with wise life...

Nothing more interesting and exciting than experimenting with mohair. Mixing colors, making shades, adding details until the creation looks irresistible attractive.

Acquarelles on Fabric

Aug 16, 2011

After a long search, I finally could transfer my paintings on fabric and I have to admit: they look great. The fabric cannot faint or blur. It is washable too. How nice to see a cushion perk up and embellish small items as real work of art. Use all your bits and pieces, mohair, wool, cotton or whatever left-overs you do not like to...

Paint and shade is added. Last step is making its leather saddle, tail and mane. Now his bit and bridle and there he goes the perky Gee-gee. Big step...

Poste Restante

Mar 21, 2011

This little friend Poste Restante is a combi of identities: the old tin mail-box is from the UK, the vintage mohair originated in Germany, the ribbon came from France and everything was assembled at a place just in between those countries. An air-mail envelop and red/blue pencils created the post in the bag, and 2 real teddy magazines are hidden in it too. Poste Restante...
