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 intensely stitched design of roses and daisies, on a felted background, edged by blanket stitch in blue crochet cotton, forms this striking textile necklace.
'Rose shaped' patches of lovely hand-dyed felt, in shades of pale blue, have been felted to a background of 'eco' felt ( commercially produced from recycled plastic bottles) using an embellisher machine. Patches of hand dyed fibres, and 'teased out' yarns have been added to the felting. The design has been enhanced by hand embroidery, using a variety of threads, some of them vintage. The design has been framed by blanket stitch in pale blue crochet cotton.
The necklace is backed with a second layer of eco felt. The necklace closes by tying a pretty bow in the pale blue velvet ribbon ties - allowing the necklace to be adjusted to fit.
Depth of embroidered 'bib' panel at front centre - 6.5 cm approx
Width of back 'opening' when laid out flat (as in image 4) - 17 cm approx
Length of each ribbon tie - 45 cm approx
Items of embroidered jewellery may not be colourfast - care should be taken to avoid getting them wet in use to avoid colour transfer.
I love to felt and embroider these designs using for inspiration my collection of hand-dyed felt and fibres and my horde of embroidery threads - some of them vintage
