Shop Announcement:

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.

Embroidered Summer Garden Zipped Purse

Embroidered Summer Garden Zipped Purse
Love this


The front of this purse is felted, using an embellisher machine, to represent the background of a rose garden border. The larger flowers are initially felted and then enhanced with embroidery. Simple embroidery stitches in vintage threads and crewel wools provide the rest of the 'planting'.

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) - 12 cm approx.
Height (excluding seems) - 9 cm approx
Opening - 11 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 felted roses in the centre of this display.
