I love sewing small things. I love how much cuter things look in miniature, or how a tiny bit of vintage fabric can be transformed into a whole jacket. My latest commission took miniature jackets to the next level of tiny. I was asked by our new neighbourhood cafe to dress their tiny single-serve teapots! It was a pretty exciting sewing project and a treat to contribute something to the gorgeously decked out RSC, with its classic old-style wood-panelled wall, Axminster floral ceiling and snugly crocheted blankets.
Check out the little sweeties below, inspired by what nana and grandad might wear for lunch at the RSA. I recycled a vintage tweed coat, found remnants of woollen fabrics and blankets, and matched them with dainty cottons. And I had a great time with my button-obsessed toddler, rummaging through my huge button stash for a final touch of vintage charm.
