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.
An atmospheric, applique, embroidered landscape featuring a winter tree design, decorates this chunky brooch. One of a series of tree brooches - each embroidery unique in composition. This one would look lovely on a winter coat, jacket or bag!
The background of this brooch has been created by appliqueing an assortment of fabric scraps, in wintry blue shades, to a fleece fabric background. The fabrics have been arranged to compose a patchwork of fields. A scrap of lace gives the field in the foreground a frosty feel. Details of the composition have been added by hand embroidery. The tree is stitched from partially un-ravelled yarn, the sheep are stitched in a selection of cotton threads and linen floss.
Couching, over a twist of dark grey yarn and a fancy yarn in blue shades, frames the design.
The brooch is stiffened by plastic cut from a recycled bottle. The back of the brooch is neatened with commercial felt and a brooch pin is securely stitched in place.
Height - 7 cm approx.
