I'm designing a birthday card for the mother of a client, who will be turning 80 next month. I love the work of illustrator Salley Mavor, so I thought I'd try making a little felt bird with her art as inspiration. My bird isn't finished yet, but I'm posting the progress on it so far. I have to finish it tomorrow and send it out, to be sure it gets to the 'birthday girl' on time.
Salley Mavor works entirely in fabric, mostly felt, with lots of beading and embroidery, and she illustrates children's books with her beautiful and unique artwork. Be sure to look at her wonderful art at her website, http://www.weefolkstudio.com/ or on her blog at http://weefolk.wordpress.com/. I promise you'll love it too.
