original handmade art dolls & creatures

Nottingham, United Kingdom | 232 Sales

Announcement    Welcome to modflowers! So sorry that the shop shelves are bare again - I had no idea that so much would sell so quickly! I will endeavour to make more creatures ASAP and will upload them as they are finished, instead of waiting for a mass shop update. Pop over to my website at modflowers.co.uk to sign up for my mailing list if you would like to be notified when I list new items.

If you're new here, modflowers designs and hand makes tiny art dolls and quirky decorative creatures from cloth and clay, inspired by children's books in which magic lives amongst us, under our noses, if we only have eyes to see it.

Vintage fabrics are hunted and gathered, cushions repurposed as stuffing and old threads, buttons, beads and trims are reclaimed. All are transformed via minute stitches, imagination and hours of delicate and patient work, into tiny original characters that are playful, enchanting and reminiscent of childhood.

Please be aware - postal services are currently disrupted worldwide due to the ongoing global pandemic. I cannot guarantee that your items will arrive before Christmas, particularly if you are ordering from outside the UK, as delays due to the pandemic, or for customs reasons, are quite simply out of my control.

    lovely stuff from vintage fabric

    modflowers was born out of a love of vintage fabrics.

    In 2011 I found myself at the end of my tether with a job I hated, with no idea where to go next. I had a collection of vintage fabrics, and some sewing skills.

    I decided it was time for a change. I started sewing cushions, made from my collection of vintage fabrics. I took up patchwork again.

    Then I got a bit obsessed with dolls, so I learned how to make them.

    Instead of creating a project graveyard in the cupboard, I finished things and put them in my shop, to see what would happen.

    I stopped being too embarrassed to show anyone.

    And I stopped doing a job I hated and started building a life I could love.♥
