Pictures by Peynet

I have a few precious vintage scarves which I am making up into cushion covers. I have made each cover in such a way that the scarf is not cut up at all, but simply folded and stitched!
My favourite is a whimsical French one - so - I really was pleased to read Heather Moore's article on illustrator Raymond Peynet a while ago. His work appeared on porcelain, dolls, books, medals, statues and my scarf!The drawings are so simple and they tell a love story! It is going to be very hard for me to put this on my etsy shop, but it will be there soon!

Beautiful! I like the idea of using the scarf without cutting it as well.

Oh it is so whimsical and I love the fact that you've kept it in one piece.

(Today is one of those days when my system just would not show your post - I've checked 5 times during the day - glad you are here!)
Wow, the pictures convey an entire story, with a sense of the mood.
"Whimsical" is such a lovely word to describe this!

What a lovely idea I just love it. To bad I don´t have any scarfes, except the one I just around my neck when I´m blogging (the aircon is blowing right at me:-)

Have a great coming week

The print of the couple in the fountain is VERY cute!
