Tall Orange Toadie


My toadies are made from fabric and thread scraps from projects made in Stitch Clubs. They began as doodles: from a need to create one afternoon while clearing up puddles of left-overs. The shapes evolve organically from the fabric scraps. The bases are various sized thread bobbins, some vintage, some new.

Tall Orange Toadie is made with orange silk dupion on a tall vintage cotton reel wound with gold thread. The spots are french knots made with hand dyed embroidery thread with a twist of metallic.

Approximate dimensions: 10cm x 10cm x 26cm
