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.
A practical and pretty embroidered needle book, entirely hand-stitched from vintage textiles.
I loved the texture and bold stripes of a vintage, red and white tea towel which showed no signs of use. Cut so that the stripes are pleasingly placed, it has provided fabric for the cover of this needle book. A simple circular motif has been hand-embroidered onto the front of the cover using matching white and red threads. On the reverse of the needlebook the sentiment 're-love re-live' has been hand embroidered in a circular motif in the same red and white threads. The cover is finished by an edging of blanket stitch in white thread.
The needle book is lined in a grey and white striped fabric. The cover is stiffened by two layers of interfacing. Two pieces of vintage soft flannelette are folded and securely stitched in place, to provide four 'pages' for your needles and pins. The needle case closes by winding two red 'cords' (produced from crocheted thread), in opposing directions around a lovely vintage, linen-covered, laundry button.
