A Handmade item
Made in Australia
by Nest in The Attic
* All Madeit sellers are based in Australia and goods are shipped from Australia.

Made from a silk fabric in a beautiful pale blue, I've used a mix of machine and hand sewing to make this mushroom (or toadstool if you prefer) which has been built up around wire in the cup and stem.
It is loosely reminiscent of the blue agaric mushroom....with quite a bit of creative license on my part! :)

The embellishments on the cap are stained vintage lace pieces and a little bit of hand embroidery, and a piece of hand dyed cheesecloth adorns the stem.

This particular piece is assembled in the base part of a wooden cigar box which has been altered using various papers, staining, stamping, cheesecloth, lichen, dried roses and fibres.
A sweet and very tiny white dormouse, handmade by me from white viscose, sleeps peacefully at the base of the stem.

The mushroom itself is tied into the box, rather than glued, as I feel gluing would ruin the fabric. This also allows the piece to be removed from the box to be viewed from all sides.

The box measures approx 20.5 x 11cms (8 x 4 1/4")

My soft sculptures are mostly OOAK - one of a kind- as I don't really know where I'm going with them when I start, so it will be rare to see two that look same or even similar.

***PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS PIECE CONTAINS ELEMENTS OF PLANT LIFE THAT IS DEFINITELY BANNED INTERNATIONALLY, SO IF OVERSEAS CUSTOMERS WISH TO PURCHASE THEN THE LITTLE COLLECTION IN THE BOTTOM OF THE DISPLAY WILL NEED TO BE REMOVED OR THE MUSHROOM CAN BE BOUGHT AT A REDUCED PRICE. PLEASE CONTACT ME PRIOR TO PURCHASE IF THIS IS THE CASE! :)

If I can ship for less then I'm happy to refund the difference.
If possible multiple orders can be sent for less via courier.
