I love the mix of using pretty fabrics and creating something a little dark and often a little scary.
Spiders are perfect for this mix as they are either adored or detested.
This one is made from a pretty vintage hand sewn sampler.
Made with a lot of love and care her tightly stuffed body is similar in shape to the 'golden orb weaver spider' which is my current obsession.
Flaws,patches and odd stitching are celebrated and are to expected.
Designed as a decorative object she is both charming and totally unique.
Would look beautiful on a dressing table,crawling over books or in a bell jar.
Can be hung anyway up simply from a ring on the reverse.
As the distance from the hanging ring to the wall can be a little distance a little thread looped through helps the spider hang at a distance that you are happy with easily and quickly.
She will be sent out recorded so can be tracked and signed for on delivery.
Nothing I make is designed to be given to a child/baby as they are very delicate items which contain wire and beads.
This spider is roughly 26cm x 20cm,I say roughly as you can pull or push the legs in to change the size and stance slightly.
The body alone is 17cm x 5cm.
Thanks for looking!
This listing is for one spider, no photographic props are included.
