Summer capelets – work in progress

It’s a capelet / shrug kinda thing.  It’s made from lots of suffolk puffs made from old shirts…….

……they’re all held together with lots of white machine embroidery………

…….and water soluble fabric was the secret ingredient.

It’s a work in progress due to the ridiculous amount of time it took to make, rendering it one of my less commercial ideas.  Maybe if I could farm out the work to some children in China it could work.  I probably won’t, don’t panic.

Let’s see where it goes.  Perhaps it’s destined for commission pieces only, exhibitions, or just for my own guilty pleasure.
