A Jolly pigeon for a lapel or a jumper or cardigan, handmade in felt by Lynsey Walters.
The pigeon is hand cut from industrial wool felt using my flat bed press and die cutters that I have made to my own design. It is then stitched together and decorated with a mother of pearl button using embroidery thread.
Each felt bird measures approximately 8 x 4 cm.
Commissioning a piece of work is really exciting – it is a chance to have something made especially for you and an opportunity to really engage in the creative process.
Perhaps you need accessories to go with a particular outfit or a piece of furniture to fit a specific space in your home. We can work with you to design something truly unique. You’ll be able to discuss your ideas, likes and dislikes with the Maker and together create a piece of craft, handmade for you.
This is just a first step, so don't worry, there’ll be plenty of chances to discuss details before finalising a commission.
