ETSY SHOP UPDATE http://elliefiddes.etsy.com

I have just added four new masks to my shop.

These are vibrant coloured batik fabrics I picked up in Africa.  The style is inverted box pleat, a two layer mask with a filter pocket built in.  These sell at £5.00.

The pleats on the mask open when worn to show more of the pattern.  Below are some examples.  

Find me on Etsy at http://elliefiddes.etsy.com

Face coverings in my new Etsy shop

I have opened a new Etsy shop, and have listed some face coverings/masks there.  

I have made them from vintage fabrics and from vibrant coloured fabrics.  

This vintage one was made from Greeff “Bird of Paradise”  I hope you like it 🙂

WORDPRESS FACEBOOK INSTAGRAM

Am all over the place! 🙂 I wish I could cross post between here and instagram. So here is the link to my latest post there – a little bit of spinning using a lovely mixed fibre bat. Some of which I kept back for a bit of needle felting as I like it so much. Enjoy!

I was hoping in this all singing, all dancing, linked up world that I would somehow be able to link up my WordPress blog with my Instagram account, but unfortunately not to be 😦  At least not as yet.

So for the meantime you can find my latest pictures on instagram

YARN BOMBING!

Ever since I heard of it I have wanted to have a go at yarnbombing. So when The Fit O’ The Toon Community Association in Arbroath decided to have a go at doing some at Danger Point, I join them.

It’s a lot of creative fun getting together once a week with a group of lovely creative people, who chose the name the Wooly Workers.

The bombing targets are the restored drying green poles, lampposts, gateways and other street furniture in the immediate area. The full installation is due to go up at the end of May and will stay in place for a couple of weeks.

There are lots of inspired works already completed or in progress. We now have a facebook group where you can catch up on progress and the latest news of the installation of the bombing!  https://www.facebook.com/woollyworkers/
