Vintage Fabric Bird Art Canvases at yay retro now

I am delighted to have introduced a new range of bird art canvases into my online shop. I make these using genuine vintage fabrics and high quality felt. Each canvas is a perfect 20cm square and are ideal to prop on a shelf or quickly hang on the wall (all you need is a little nail, pin or tack!)


Take this cutie which features 3 unique yay retro vintage fabric blackbirds, surrounded by carefully chosen flower power fabrics from the 1950s/60s. Each canvas includes machine and hand embroidery, and added mixed media details such as glass beads or vintage buttons and felt details.

The canvas below features a detailed genuine vintage fabric bird, on a patchwork of vintage and recycled quality fabrics with machine and hand embroidery. Easy to hang or prop anywhere in your home, these make fabulous gifts and are completely unique. Take a look at my range of handmade genuine vintage fabric bird ornaments and canvases here.

Make one of these unique artworks yours today and stand it on a shelf or hang from a hook or tack on the wall! Don't forget, everything in the shop includes FREE UK mainland postage!

Where Can I Buy a Unique Handmade Crochet Throw?



Hi there, I'm Sue and I create unique crochet throws and blankets which I sell in my online shop yay retro. I don't use patterns, instead I create designs in a painterly and creative way as I go along, working on colour blends and layouts during the process of making. 

Living in Totnes, South Devon I have a whole host of one-off crochet designs ready to buy now in my online shop. I can also take commissions (just message me to discuss your requirements).

One of my favourite motifs is the love heart, as I know that many people like to give my crochet creations as gifts.  Whether for a baby shower, or a birthday gift for any age group, or perhaps a blanket to offer comfort during difficult times, I have lots of feedback from happy customers telling me their gift was greatly appreciated.



My blankets are also a superb way to add colour or texture to any room in your home. From your lounge to bedroom and everywhere in-between!  Personally I use crochet blankets on our bed in winter, when out and about on picnics and also on our boat, to wrap up on chilly days.  Crochet throws and blankets have so many uses - why not pop in to yay retro now where you can buy securely online.
