Shop Announcement:

In these difficult times, I continue to work from home. I am only selling items which can be posted via the Post Box which is just outside my gate. I have a stock of stamps and packaging materials and, therefore, can stay open for business without imposing extra risk on other individuals. As usual, accessories featuring original embroidery, in association with felting, hand dyeing and fabric painting may be found in my other Folksy shop - 'Lynwoodcrafts'.

Love this


A pretty and practical, hand-embroidered red and white pincushion stitched from vintage textiles.

A red, grey and white, vintage tea towel, which showed no signs of use, provided a pleasing fabric for the front of the pincushion. A circular, floral motif has been hand embroidered in red and white threads. The back of the pincushion is also cut from the striped, vintage fabric. The sentiment 're-love re-live' is hand embroidered in a circular motif using red and white threads. The pincushion is filled with polyester wadding.

Height - 8 cm approx

Image four shows the pincushion with an matching needle book which is listed separately.

I found a little pile of vintage - largely unused tea towels. I liked the texture of the fabrics and the bold stripes. This is one of the first items to be made from them. I designed a simple floral motif for the front of the pincushion and embroidered 're-love re-live in a circular motif on the reverse.
