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.
A simple butterfly shape, cut from black felt, has been lavishly embroidered, using patterns adapted from crewel work to make this bright and attractive textile brooch.
The butterfly has been embroidered, in crewel work stitches, using embroidery threads. The butterfly is edged in blanket stitch, stiffened by a layer of heavy interfacing and backed by another layer of felt. A brooch pin is securely stitched in place. Antennae have been formed from silk flower stamens.
Height (maximum excluding antennae): 4 cm approx
Width: 6 cm
Items of embroidered jewelry may not be entirely colourfast and care should be taken that jewellery items do not get wet in use in case colour should be transferred to items of clothing.
An exploration of crewel work techniques was my starting point.
