Be-spoke

I sewed this hearty little bicycle when I was home for the weekend. 
It was a very therapeutic process, and all in aid of our second Bespoke illustration exhibition at Cafe Boscanova, which is love themed to correspond with St. Valentine season. I focused on the notion of a regrettably unwelcome third wheel or tag-a-long type of character who might plague a couple trying to have some twosome time.



As often with hand-sewn objects, I found the reverse side fascinating in its own right, so I backed the piece with perspex so you can see through the reverse side of the frame.
Below, if you look closely, you can see the bike cozied up with all its illustration bedfellows.
Maybe it'll meet your gaze next time you're having coffee.
