Red Silk 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.

Red Silk Toadie has a top layer of red silk, spotted with white cotton french knots. The gills are made from strips of plastic silk fabric left over from making Squid. It sits on a vintage Wallaert Freres cotton reel.

Approximate dimensions: 8cm x 8cm x 8cm
