Men’s Stuff Patchwork

AlisonSye799

Finally finished my patchwork of so-called men’s stuff.

It is mostly made from knackered old books which were beyond reading, but I used some magazines, postcards and junk mail, too. The squares are not copied, I have used the actual book and papers, making this piece a one-off.

During the next few weeks I shall post about its making, by focusing on a patch each day, then tagging the posts below.

My work is individually numbered, this piece is 799.

It can be found in my shop.

    • I am so sorry, I am worried about posting expensive stuff to the US, and I am guessing that guaranteed delivery would be very expensive, as it costs quite a lot just within the UK. My main worry is that everything is a one-off and couldn’t be replaced if lost. Also, I have heard that you would have to pay tax, too. I will look into this. I post the much cheaper cards to the US, don’t know if they are of interest.

      • Where do you post them, on Etsy? And I don’t blame you for worrying about things lost in the mail. The U.S. Postal Service is not what it once was.

      • Royal Mail either, always hearing of horror stories. I would of course replace anything lost, and then some, but it would never be what the customer actually wanted to buy. No, I am not on Etsy, although I have been advised to look into it, I am with Folksy.
