playing with funfair token fabric strips

I bought some this exciting fabric strip in red with funfair token pattern a while a go and wanted to do something with it. It’s from a lovely haberdashery shop called Beyond Fabrics in East London. I made an oversized top with star patterened fabric in baby blue and used the strip to make the halterneck straps to tie behind the neck. I also made a bracelet with the leftover. I love the idea of funfair, circus, burlesque, hippie and so on. I am too serious a person to actually be involved in their world but I am fascinated by the utopian/distopian notion they have.
