Two Eco-Friendly Cat Postcards

707

Two eco-friendly ‘Cat’ postcards can now be found in the ‘Sale’ section of my Folksy shop, priced at £4 each.

Each one is a unique, one-off piece. They are originals, not prints.

As always, they are sewn from stuff I rescued from the bin; used cereal boxes, my family’s worn-out clothes, and a battered copy of James and the Giant Peach by Roald Dahl. I never cut up books which could otherwise be read, or clothes which could otherwise be worn.

They were made a couple of years ago, at a time of experimentation, and are not nearly so slick as my current work, hence the price. Also, in those days, I did not keep such detailed records of my materials. However, I did not make them to sit under our bed in a shoe-box.

They are blank postcards, and can be used for any occasion which suits you.

They are bigger than regular postcards.

Last Minute Note: The top one has just been sold.

Mostly Uninvited 210

AlisonSye210

92-year-old George Skipper, who was on Gold Beach on D Day. He can’t understand how he survived unscathed. He stayed in Germany until 1947, helping to rebuild houses. Taken from a Royal British Legion leaflet.

If You Are New Here: This project involves me sewing faces, from the obscene amount of junk mail that finds its way into my house, onto a big woollen blanket. ‘Uninvited’ was the working title, until I changed it to ‘Mostly Uninvited’. Unless I tell you otherwise, take it that the junk mail was pushed through my letterbox. Or else it was inside of a newspaper. I will always credit photographers, designers and the faces, whenever possible. All of my work is numbered, this is 632. If you search this number in ‘Categories’, you can find out about the other faces.
