Stamps and re-purposed clothing workshop

I carved these stamps a couple of weeks ago but have only managed to get them into my Etsy store today.


these are Honesty seeds - SOLD


a poppy seed head - SOLD


seed pods - SOLD


smiley critter


another poppy seed head - SOLD

Patsy and I held our first repurposed clothing workshop last week. It was great fun, very inspiring and amazing to see what other people create with similar garments. We only work with two students at a time which means they get at least one garment finished.

Thanks everyone for all of your lovely comments re my stacks, I haven't managed to get around to everyone.

Love your stamps and the repurposed garments. Such a brilliant idea, and you end up with a one-off designer coat. I must go and rifle through my wardrobe!

I haven't carved any stamps in several years, but I'm so in love with your poppy seed heads, I may get out my carving materials.

The garments are cool, too!
