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. The re-purposing of vintage threads and fabrics, and the re-cycling of vintage linens and lace, are recurring themes and my listings include a small selection of vintage textile supplies.
The front of this glasses case has been entirely hand-stitched from a piece of felt which has been heavily embroidered to represent a cottage garden border.
Sky blue wool fibers have been felted to a background of kunin felt (produced from recycled plastic bottles). Textured, hand-dyed wool tops, some of them with lovely curls, have been felted in clumps to represent the planting. Stitching in fine cotton has been added to the sky to 'stabilise' the felting. Simple embroidery stitches, in crewel, tapestry and knitting wools, have been used to create more foliage and the pretty flowers. The case is edged in blanket stitch using threads to match the areas of the design.
The case is lined in a printed cotton fabric - blue harebells on a white background, backed with iron-on interfacing. The reverse of the cover is a pale blue linen fabric. The case is seemed with blanket stitch in a pale blue crochet cotton for durability. The case closes with a crocheted loop - using the same blue cotton thread, over a grey button.
Dimensions (excluding seems):
Depth - 16 cm approx
Width - 9 cm approx
One in a series of 'meadow' items inspired by the felt I have created using my collection o f hand-dyed fibers.
