Crochet Flowers on Canvas Artwork

Having trained as a fine art painter, I have long been wanting to create a 3 dimensional crocheted artwork on canvas, and ta-dah! Here it is!



This has been made with heaps of tiny crocheted flowers made with the most beautiful, top quality cotton rich Scheepjes river and stonewashed yarn in yellow, orange, sky blue and green tones. There is an array of different flower designs in this piece, with lots of delicious texture and hues.



The flowers have been carefully sewn together and then mounted onto a 40cm square and 4cm deep top quality, fine art stretched canvas. A one -off piece, do snap this up if you love it as much as I do! Ideal for any wall in your modern vintage home. A wonderful gift and heirloom.



You can buy this piece here.

Many people have fallen in love with the Katie Jones designed crochet pattern called The Blooming Bomber Jacket. Normally made with a black background and bold primary colours; this funky one-size-fits-all jacket works in all sorts of colour schemes. This is the third one I've made, and this time I've tried a hippy, boho theme, even adding a wooden button closure.

This is available to buy right now on my website here. Be quick, as I like to make these in one off colour schemes.
