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.
This passport cover has been entirely hand-stitched and lavishly embroidered with a cottage garden design.
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, cotton threads, crewel, tapestry and knitting wools, have been used to create more foliage and the pretty flowers.
The cover is stitched from a grey and blue printed cotton fabric and is lined with a cotton fabric in a small floral print, in shades of pink and purple on cream, backed by interfacing. Folded pockets at each end of the cover are securely blanket-stitched in place, and accept the covers of the passport. The case closes with a crocheted cotton loop over a blue button.
The cover is designed to fit a standard passport.
