In these difficult times, I continue to work from home. I am only selling items which can be posted via the Post Box which is just outside my gate. I have a stock of stamps and packaging materials and, therefore, can stay open for business without imposing extra risk on other individuals. As usual, 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.
A retro-inspired design featuring a tiny ladybird, on a plant pot containing a blue flowered plant, stitched on light weight interfacing, sealed with a coat of varnish and framed with turquoise felt forms this distinctive textile brooch.
Hand made stamps were used to print the design onto interfacing using a good quality fabric paint. The design was enhanced with some very simple embroidery, using cotton threads - these embroidery stitches also serve to anchor the design to the backing felt. A life-sized ladybird has been stitched to complete the design. A fine sewing cotton has been used to blanket stitch around the edge of the interfacing. The design has been sealed with a coat of clear varnish to improve durability.
The brooch is stiffened by a layer of heavy interfacing. The back of the brooch has been neatened by an extra backing of felt. A brooch pin is securely stitched in place.

Items of embroidered jewellery may not be colourfast - care should be taken to remove them from clothing before clothing is washed.
Please note: items from Lynwoodcrafts are intended for adults. This item is unsuitable for children under 3 years of age since it contains small parts which may represent a choking hazard. This item is also unsuitable for older children as it contains a sharp pin.
I have been meaning to experiment with painting on interfacing for a while. I love the depth of colour possible with this fabric paint and have aimed for a 'retro', slightly kitsch and fun feel to these brooches.
