Three Eco-Friendly Flower Postcards

728. A sewn collage, made from used cereal boxes, a battered copy of Girl's Own Annual 1891 - making it more than 120 years old! The article on the page I have used is called The Emancipation Of The Seamstresses by Anne Beale.

Three eco-friendly ‘Flower’ postcards can now be found in the ‘Sale’ section of my Folksy shop.

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

As always, they are sewn from stuff I rescued from the bin; used cereal boxes, worn-out clothes and books, train tickets and leaflets. 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, so I am selling them.

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

They are bigger than regular postcards.

There will be 30% discount on everything in my shop on 14th and 15th November, 2015. More details to follow.
