Here's one I made earlier

For the past ten years or so, I've been recycling fabric from various sources. For instance, the fabric for the E17 artwork was discarded by a seller of my local market. I suppose it was too short to be sold as an offcut! I picked it up, washed it and used it to make my textile artwork. It was the perfect colour, forest green, as the glorious Epping Forest! I think it was used for school uniforms as there's a local school that uses that colour.

This pretty wallhanging for my baby's room was made from curtain material (a leftover my partner gave me, it came from his old house), small pieces from various shop swatchbooks and a few bits and pieces from discarded things.
