7. Patchwork Dads – Prince Charles


Prince Charles is using my stitches as convenient little pockets. Looks like he might enjoy a bit of line dancing. He is the father of William and Harry, or, as my mam calls them, ‘the boys’, as if they live next door.

See Charles below, with his siblings and parents. Prince Philip, who was not in a skirt-wearing kinda mood, is not unlike my beach dad.

This is the seventh square in my patchwork of dads. It is made from discarded books, magazines, postcards and junk mail. It is made from the actual papers, I have not printed or copied anything. There are sixteen squares in total. You can see the whole piece here.

The square is cut from a postcard published by Charles Skilton And Fry Limited, c1972.

All of my work is individually numbered, this piece is 798. It can be found in my shop.
