This is a small work of textile art, mounted onto white card ready for framing. Forty nine squares of old and new fabric and leather, layered under whisper thin organza and embellished with simple handworked stitches. Many of the scraps of fabric have meaning – a piece of my grandfathers handkerchief, and fragments from my partner’s shirt a scrap of my mother’s handkerchief. Scatterings of memories held down by silk.
The piece is 17cm square, and mounted onto a 30cm square mounting card. This piece fits perfectly in a UniGift shadow box frame.
The work is mounted with neat stitches in the corners that are invisible from the front. If you wish to mount/frame the work differently when you receive it you can snip the attaching stitches on the back without damaging the work.
(Note that the framing matting board shown in the final image is for illustrative purposes only, the surrounding mat is not included in the purchase.)
