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.
SALE - Previously £13.
A retro-inspired design featuring a tiny ladybird, on a plant pot containing a red and orange flowered plant, stitched on light weight interfacing, sealed with a coat of varnish and framed with bright orange 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.
Maximum height - 6.5 cm approx

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.
