I hope you all had a good weekend!? I have been busy working on some new drawings over the past few days around the theme of Make do and Mend. I love all the illustrations found in the original leaflets from the Second World War and wanted to create a collection of my own inspired by the original illustrations. I have done a few illustrations of buttons and cotton reels, but I am still working on a ball of wool, and some illustrations similar to the ones found in the original make do and mend leaflets.
So here is a sneaky peek at a few of my illustrations... still not sure what to do with them yet might just make buttons with them... or some earrings.... necklace... the options are endless.
