"Hiding in the Clouds" mini garland
A few people have asked me about cat inspired ornaments. So, I reverted to my childhood and remembered that Kitty-chan that kept me smiling though so much in life. My grandmother would send me Kitty-chan things to Kenya wall the way from Hokkaido. In those days, she was barely known outside of Japan. Yet somehow she's become ingrained in many memories of my childhood. I remember lying on the grass one day playing that game of seeing things in the clouds. I could've sworn that I saw a kitty-chan shaped cloud.
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 Unstoppable Kid garland, I've used my rough interpretation of a Kitty-chan shape cut out from a limited edition Liberty and Hello Kitty collaboration fabric that I bought back in 2011. The reverse side of kitty, the bow and the the clouds are all made of 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 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.
