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.
Pretty pastel pinks, from my hand-dyed vintage linens and laces, stitched into a crazy patchwork, and embellished with hand-embroidered roses, form the design for this unique brooch..
Vintage linens and lace scraps have been hand-dyed in pink. I have chosen two scraps of pink fabric and a fragment of hand-crocheted lace to form the patchwork front of this brooch. Coordinating pink vintage threads have been used to hand embroider embellishments. The design is framed by blanket stitch in pink thread over a twist of hand-dyed cotton yarn and hand-dyed thread ( both in the same range of pinks as the fabrics used in this design) combined with the pink and green threads featured in the embroidery.
The brooch is stiffened with ovals cut from a recycled plastic bottle. The back of the brooch is neatened with a layer of felt and a brooch pin is securely stitched in place.
Height: 5.8 cm approx.
Please note: care should be taken to remove the brooch from items of clothing before laundry. The brooch should not be washed and can not be guaranteed to be colourfast.
