vintage fabric softies by grrl + dog | Emma Lamb

Occasionally I stumble upon an Etsy shop and immediately and completely fall head over heels for the gorgeous goodies therein. When this happens I suddenly go all secretive and kinda jealous. I love the items so much but worry about favouriting them or the lovely shop, just in case someone else comes along and buys up all those gorgeous goodies and then artist suddenly decides they don't want to make said goodies anymore and I will never get to see such beauty again! Yeah, I know that's a daft and messed up way of thinking! That's why today I am (reluctantly) sharing grrl + dog's stunning vintage fabric softies. Denise Litchfield's is the incredible talent and stitchery obsessed artist behind grrl + dog, who crafts these beautiful softies...


"I adore vintage fabric and buttons. I hoard old lace. My hand embroidered primitive softies emerge from the 1930's and 1940's using rescued fabric and feedsack.
Over many hours of hand stitching, they tell me stories of who they were.. running in open fields, gathering daisies or stirring a pot while the kettle whisltes softly. They speak of a time when things were honest and made to last."


Denise then stitches and patches these stories into new characters that have their own wee story to tell... I love that! In fact , just love everything about them ~ the embroidery, vintage fabric combinations, gorgeous colours, their shapes and faces and even the way they have been photographed and styled.

In addition to her Etsy shop, grrl + dog also has a great website and blog where you can find out more about these vintage fabric softies and Denise's guerrilla knitting... :)

Wishing you all a sunny day,
Emma, x
