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.
Hollyhocks created from tiny suffolk puffs, appliqued roses and a generous assortment of daisies and smaller roses on a felt background - stitched over a recycled CD.
The background of this plaque has been created from felt in pale blue and mid green. A pink and cream checked fabric has been used to create tiny suffolk puffs - they have a lovely 3D effect and have been used to represent hollyhocks. A glazed pink cotton fabric has been used for three large rose flowers. Other hollyhocks, roses, daisies and much foliage has been added by simple stitches in wools and cotton threads - some from my vintage collection. Couching, over a twist of fancy yarns, frames the design.
The plaque is stiffened by a central core of a recycled CD. The back of the plaque is neatened with commercial felt and a hanging loop, of button-hole stitch in cotton, is securely stitched in place.
Height (excluding hanging loop) - 13 cm approx.
Please note this plaque may not be washed.
The easel is not included.
