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.
The front of this purse is hand crocheted to represent a harvest landscape. Distant poppies have been hand embroidered using a mixture of wools and cotton threads. The larger poppies in the foreground have been stitched from silk ribbon.
The back of the purse has been stitched from a red, blue and white fabric. The back panel is backed with iron-on interfacing for some structure. The lining is machine stitched, from a blue white and yellow striped fabric, and the zip machine stitched to the lining. The purse outer is hand stitched and then hand-stitched to the assembled lining.
Width (excluding seems) - 11.5 cm approx.

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.
A theme which I have re-visited many times - making a variety of items and employing many different materials and techniques. I particularly like the big red silk ribbon poppies on this purse.
