Birds of Aotearoa (New Zealand)

This one was a bit of fun - I made it for some friends in Auckland, to go on their retro blue velour sofa.  It's a large European cushion cover (65cm) created from a vintage scarf.  mb

The Slaying of The Dragon

A set of four small cushion covers created from a single vintage scarf.  Each depicts a different character of a medieval tale:  the princess in the tower, the king, the wizard and the dragon.  A fun and unique series to own, they are currently for sale in my online store.  mb

Some scarves are precious.  On the wall here is a framed hand-screened silk scarf dated 1975.  I love the medieval French illustration.  mb
