Rainbow houses

Most of you who know me, know I adore 80's nostalgia tv. I think it oftens creeps into things I make and recently I have become a little obsessed with houses, the shapes and details on them, using op-shop fabrics that I find along the way as well as bought fabric, cute buttons, soft houses, large cushion houses... and just even drawing them and making cards with houses on! When I was making them I had a few things inspire me... The starting scene from Rainbow, a british tv programme from the 80's. [For those who don't know what I am talking about - WATCH IT.] It's amazing... such vibrant colours and quirky shapes with an awesome song too! I am playing with shapes, colours and sizes but you can see a little selection below. Making some into box framed artworks at the mo.. will post when done!
Thinking about making some flat ones too... without stuffing and in frames.The largest cushion has a zip in and is probably my current favourite. Or the tiny ones... hmm. Also going to make some tree cushions and create a soft landscape! Watch this space... Enjoy, they are all on Etsy. Lots love, K-T x
