fly away on wings of fabric

These birds by London-based textile artist/illustrator Abigail Brown are incredibly adorable. At first glance they seem so simple, but after a few minutes of closer inspection, you begin to see the many layers of fabric - some old, some new, with frayed edges and tiny stitching binding the bodies together. Each piece exudes a certain kind of beautifull, messy craftsmanship that reflects the love and attention Brown shows her projects. Though the prices are a little steep, I feel they accurately match all the time and energy that goes in to each piece.
