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 delicately pretty, embroidered lace and patchwork purse is slightly larger than a typical coin purse and might have a variety of uses.
Scraps of colour coordinated fabric, some recycled - others off-cuts from other craft projects, many of them vintage prints, have been 'felted' to a background of 'eco' felt (produced from recycled plastic bottles) using an embellisher machine. Two 'irish crochet' roses, and a pretty lace flower have been stitched in the centre of the patchwork panel with embroidered leaves added. Cross stitches, also in white cotton thread, have been worked over the exposed edges of the patchworked scraps for extra durability.
The back of the purse, and the purse lining, have been cut from cream fabrics. The back panel is backed with iron-on interfacing for some structure. The lining is machine stitched and the zip machine stitched to the lining. The purse outer is hand stitched and then hand-stitched to the assembled lining. Two lengths of satin ribbon, and a miniature button, have been used to create an attractive embellishment for the zipper pull.
