Vintage fabric bears

Lindsey Agostinelli has cleverly used 40s and 50s fabrics to create these two bears.
 Both bears are for sale in Handmade Happiness. £29 each.

The old fabrics are from Penny Baker who collects vintage fabrics and packages them for the shop.
I like it when people use old things and make something very special out of them - like these bears.

One of my customers suggested that charities should let invited designer/makers loose in their warehouses to choose whatever they wanted to make into stylish new things to sell. The charity could have a special label for these upcycled items with money shared between the charity and the maker. An excellent idea don't you think?
