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.
Pretty silver plated butterfly charms, combined with hand embroidery and hand-dyed vintage linen and lace scraps combine in this stylish and pretty brooch.
Vintage linens and lace scraps have been hand-dyed in shades of grey. A crazy patchwork panel has been stitched from three fragments of fabric and a lovely scrap of hand-made vintage lace. Simple embroidery in two metallic threads embellishes the design. The design is framed by couching in silver thread over a twist of thicker silver threads.
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: 6 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.

One of a series based on my collection of hand-dyed vintage linen and lace
