This work is exhibited in the National botanical gardens of Wales. I went to David Hieatt talk about jeans. He felt strongly about how jeans and have a story to tell. I decided to buy two pairs of high quality second hand jeans from a charity shop and make them tell a story. I have transferred one in to a vest top and using machine embroidery I stitched love quotes on additional fabrics. I used organic fabric because I thought it would work well with the jeans and the up cycling/recycling project.
I had an old pair of Chelsea boots so to match the up cycling project I decided to use them too. Using thread and yarn I have weaved multicolour stripes across the boots.
Using Illustrator and Photoshop I have created 6 design based on Scanned Memory. I have inspired by insets, flowers and nature.
Using Photoshop, I put my collection on to surfaces. I thought that this collection looks good on interiors so I decided to put it on surfaces like walls, bedding, pillows, lamps and curtains.
Digital print with hand embroidery. Using insets to digitally or screen print then finishing with hand embroidery.
Mother of Africa is a charity that focuses on pregnant woman in Africa. I participated in creating the quilt of a ruffle. We have raised over £260. I chose to focus on the children that would have to grow up without their mothers. Using patterned or died fabric I hand and machine embroidered crying baby to show emotions and saddens.
This was exhibited in Paper Gallery in Bristol. During this project I have focused on movement and captured people walking, dancing or in different positions. Using tie dye, appliqué, hand embroidery and free machine embroidery I have created a set of six pillows.
This was exhibited in Paintworks in Bristol. Inspired by my five-year-old cousin I have created a set of hand embroidered sample representing toys.
