Jacobs Cream Cracker Bag:
The bag is made from pure Scottish tweed with a cotton lining. It has a twist 'antique metal' clasp and magnetic snaps. It holds its cuboid shape but is soft and flexible. It is one of my few functional items and is a one off with an adjustable strap.
About Soft Sculpture
Nicola looks at classic British products and packaging. These designs are embroidered and then hand stitched into shape. She aims to get the detail and form as accurate as she can and the pieces, whilst firm, are satisfyingly squashy.
