‘JUST WISHING’, a truly unique piece of textile art featuring contemporary illustration on a beautiful piece of vintage fabric.
I source vintage fabrics and embroideries from across the UK, and add to them with my quirky illustrative style, using contemporary fabrics, threads and beads to create these lovely pieces of art that appeal across the age range, and look wonderful in any setting.
‘Just Wishing’ makes a real focal point for any room, and is one of our favourite pieces here at Little Singing Bird!
I’ve used part of a lovely vintage embroidered tablecloth as the background for this piece, beautifully embroidered with flowers and a ‘crinoline lady’, this was a very popular theme throughout the 30’s and 40’s, whereby designs were available as transfers, so they could be stitched over with very pleasing results! In fact, on this piece, you can still see some of the transfer lines that have not been stitched over! Please be aware there are a few areas of slight discolouration due to its age, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
The wonderful embroidered bear and swarm of hand embroidered bees make this into a really eyecatching and humorous piece of art.
The picture is completed with a flat matt black wooden frame with high quality styrene/acrylic glazing that is indistinguishable from glass.
The frame measures approx. 14×14″ (approx. 36x36cm)
