Made using a collaged patchwork of vintage and antique textiles all hand sewn onto their richly embellished caps. Sari silk roses, lace, embroidered starfish and flowers, fragments of cornish seashells and tiny sparkly beads all sit side by side. The fabrics have been hand dyed and tea dyed to give a further aged appearance and the calico stalks are also tea dyed. The stalk of the largest toadstool is decorated with a silky hand tinted ribbon and a small vintage cabinet key. It features the word 'fairytales'.
The largest toadstool is approximately 14cm tall by 7.5cm across the cap, the medium one approx 11cm by 5.5cm and the smallest approx 9cm by 5cm. They have weighted bases to help them stand. Sometimes the base needs a gentle squidge to encourage it to stand properly as they can be a bit tempremental.
A beautiful gift for a toadstool lover or lover of vintage fabrics and handmade work.

All orders are sent 1st class/tracked/special delivery depending on order value.
*shipping/postage fees....I am trying to perfect this part of the process to offer you the best deal but to also cover the cost of the order should items go astray in the postal system. Due to a substantial increase in shipping fees particularly to the United States as USPS have increased their prices I have unfortunately had to increase shipping fees as am unable to absorb these costs. Please don't hesitate to get in touch should you have any questions about this before buying, thank you
