“Beyond The Clouds”, garland
Look beyond the clouds, my sweet!
I love making garlands and wall hangings. I dream of them going to new homes where they will inspire, be smiled at and enjoyed for years to come - that's what spurs me to keep doing my very best to make them as well as I can. No cutting corners, no shortcuts, no details overlooked.
I think they work well in nurseries and kid's rooms, where they can be a backdrop to creative imaginative play, story telling as well as look pretty darned awesome on your walls. They also work well in living rooms and even creative spaces like offices or studios. Use them as unconventional festive or occasional decorations. Each one is painstakingly made so no two can ever be the same.
For my Beyond The Clouds garland , I designed, hand cut and hand stitched each moon, cloud, planet and star.
The moon and stars are made with chunky shimmering glitter cotton backed with wool felt.
The cloud is felt embellished with sequins and glass beads.
The planets are felt embellished with glitter felt.
The felt used is the highest quality 100% merino wool felt. It is super soft but much stronger than synthetic felts, which means my work will last and last. Conforms to European Toy Standards and carries the Oeko-Tex ‘confidence in textiles’ mark, so it contains no nasty chemicals, including heavy metals. The glitter felt and cotton elements have been selected for being high quality and low-shedding. The toy filling used to stuff the motifs complies to all EU and UK safety standards.
I have kept the cotton twine long on the garland so you have flexibility in where you wish to hang them.
Each garland will be sent boxed and beautifully wrapped in tissue and water resistant waxed paper - to protect it against our fabulous British rain.
Care instructions and a sample of washi tape will be included too.
