A serendipitous find!

 
My Blue Label range is now well underway! I launched my eco fashions (upcycled retro and vintage) in May 2015; they feature the labels shown at left. My new range (entirely made by me) features the blue labels shown at right. I used them during the 80’s and 90’s for my children’s range of denim clothing of the same name, and rediscovered the leftovers in my storeroom just recently.

I had been wondering what to call the new eco fashion range – now I know!

Said goodbye to these today!

I finally got around to making 2 stitched and needle felted tags for a group challenge/swap.

  

One of them had to show negative space, which is why it has a square hole in it!

 

I had to send them to Hobart with a friend this afternoon, so I didn’t have them for long … 

 

Made from eco dyed wool fabric, silk scraps, thread snippets and upcycled ribbon; machine quilted.
