Blythe Church

I wanted to share this with you guys! A good friend of mine sent me this image on Facebook because she knows I'm crazy about anything fibers related, and she had just done some felting herself. After researching this image, I found that this felted typewriter was created by a Canadian artist by the name of Blythe Church. The typewriter was modeled after an old Underwood typewriter that was owned by her boyfriend's grandfather. The felt is hand-dyed and the details are embroidered. So beautiful! Blythe began sewing as a hobby on the side, and fell in love with it, which led to her soft sculpted creations. You can view more of her work at her website Sewn By Blythe. She creates an array of cameras, household items, and fun little monsters. You can also visit her blog to see her recent works. Please go visit!
