I have removed the vintage fabrics from my etsy 'Feltissimo' shop but I will be listing vintage trims there in the hope that crafters or artists will be able to use them within their textile art.

I am hoping that all of my previous customers will be pleased to know that I have revived 'Rag Rescue' and vintage fabrics can now be found on my etsy shop 'RagRescue'

http://www.etsy.com/shop/RagRescue

I hope that this is a more logical way for customers to find what they want quickly.

Just a taste of what is soon to come in my etsy shop.

Christmas tree hangers made from felt and antique silks embellished together.

Vintage French fabric with autumnal colouring.

I just adore the design on this vintage French fabric. The flowers are superb abd the dark red wine colour makes the flowers jump out at you. This would be superb if it was added to a cushion/pillow front. The fabric is very strong. A great Autumnal colour which could be used also at Christmas.
Now in my 'Feltissimo' etsy shop.


Measures - 51.5cms/20.3" x 26.5cms/10.4"

Vintage Toile de Jouy fabric


Just added this vintage French fabric to my shop.
This is a wonderful piece of French Toile de Jouy. It is gently faded and in good condition apart from some holes along the bottom edge where it had been attached to something. I have not counted the fabric at the bottom in the measurements.

Measures - 46ms/18.12 x 31cms/12.2"

It will make a superb cushion front or the front of a bag. Equally it would look superb framed.

Felt,silk and scrim wall art, ancient swimming fish


I got the inspiration for this textile piece whilst at the V&A in London. In the ceramics section I saw a bowl with a design of fish that was so unusual. On reading the label I saw that it dated from c.1300-c.1400 hence the naivety of the design. The bowl was made in the Sultanabad region of Iran. I knew then that a textile piece had to be made.
 I wet felted a piece of white merino wool and attached a piece of green cotton scrim. I then cut out the fish in the same design as the V&A bowl from a fabric I mad previously made using a variety of antique silks. The fish were embellished with machine stitching using modern bronze threads. An addition of antique silk was felted for rocks and strands of wool was wrapped around wool fibres for seaweed. Further machine stitching was used in metallic threads to add depth to the piece. Finally the whole piece was made firm with the addition of a painted lightweight pelmet vilene.
Measures - 23cms/9" x 21.5cms/8.5" at the widest points.
