Artist Sarah Young’s work includes prints, paintings and a lovely collection of one-off dolls made from vintage materials. The dolls are absolutely charming, dressed in clothes from different eras, but sadly rather expensive at around £400 each. To create something more affordable and that links the dolls with her usual work, Sarah has created two Fabric Kits.
The kits consist of a textile sheet with an image of either a lady (Bertha) or a cat (Marmaduke). Both designs feature floral patterns that are reminiscent of mid-century Scandinavian fabric designs. The sheet also includes instructions for making them into dolls or if stuffed with something heavier, doorstops. Alternatively (if you aren’t one for crafts) the sheets can be left whole and used as teatowels, although that would seem rather a waste.
They cost £20 each and can be bought from Sarah Young’s website.
