Cave painting in a Vitalite tub

Monday, November 25, 2013

I've found a rich seam of material to mine in the 'things I made when I was young' theme. 

I've already shown you the first thing I (probably) sewed, and an over-accessorised donkey

But my making wasn't restricted to sewing and knitting - as demonstrated by this beautifully preserved (by my mum) 'Cave painting in a Vitalite tub'. 

Vitalite tubs = making in our house, being the ideal receptacle for all manner of craft materials. And versatile, too! This one provided the mould for my work of art, and then kept it protected so it could be photographed for a blog 25(ish) years later.

More childhood making coming soon!
