Wedding Design, New project!

Here's a sneak peek at my new project, inspired by wedding trousseaus or bottom drawers! 
The imagery for these sketches is taken from special objects the bride may collect for her new house after she is married, and from beautiful objects or materials seen at weddings. The designs will be aimed at stationery mainly,  along with fabrics and wallpaper. ©

Inspred by doileys...

Birdcages and roses. 
I created these designs on adobe illustrator, inspired by the repeated, delicate circular patterns on doileys 
and sent them through the laser cutter.
I used old papers and paper from music sheets.
Armchair doiley
These were all part of my experimentation for my French flea market project!
Vintage Mirrors
I also laser cut shapes into fabric, and appliquéd them.

Worthless or Priceless?

Worthless or priceless was an 'upcycling' exhibition at my uni. I created this 'chandelier' from some wicker cups. I weaved fabric through them and attatched broken jewellery, sequins and laser cut shapes. The laser cut shapes were designed from my drawings and cut from fabric I had dyed using natural dyes and rust patterning. The cups were all attatched with wire, which was wrapped in fabric!

And these are some of the cakes the girls on my course made!
