Fun with Felt

Some fun stuff I have been making with felt.

Felt, button and bead necklace

Felt fridge magnets

I love my button rings. Colourful and fun and I can wear a different one every day.

Mandela Collages

I created these 4 Mandela collages for an exhibition currently on at the Duncan Yard gallery in Pretoria. The exhibition is all about South Africa and celebrating the soccer world cup about to start here in 3 days.
Madiba is such a recognisable SA icon, I had a lot of fun doing these collages.
The background is covered in a traditional SA fabric called "shwe shwe" that the women use to make dresses.
