Welcome to my Folksy shop in which you will find a variety of hand-stitched accessories for you and your home, many of which make lovely (and easy-to-post) gifts. I stitch in a variety of styles, combining traditional embroidery with other textile techniques such as felting, weaving, hand dyeing and silk painting. Vintage linens and fabrics re-stitched into unique gifts and accessories may be found at my second Folksy shop 'LynwoodcraftsRecycled' where you will also find vintage sewing supplies including vintage lace.
Lace, bonded to vintage Laura Ashley fabric, and embellished with hand embroidery, gives a delicately pretty appearance to the wings of this beautiful butterfly.
The wings, each separately created, are cut from a vintage, floral, Laura Ashley fabric. They are reinforced with iron-on interfacing. Lace, bonded is bonded to the fabric. The wings are hand embroidered with a trailing rose pattern - the colors of the roses chosen to match the fabric peeping through the lace. The body of the butterfly is a short length of hand made cord - the threads carefully chosen to match the fabric and embroidery. The cord is knotted to form the head and each of the antennae is a short plait, knotted at the end.
The back of each wing is neatened, after the embroidery, by a further bonded layer of the same floral fabric. A brooch pin is securely stitched in place.
width (measured from tip to tip on upper wings) - 6.5cm approx
Length of body (excluding antenna) - 4.5 cm approx.
