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.
Vintage table linens, lace and printed cottons combined with toning fabrics, hand embroidery and crocheted edging result in a very special hand stitched blue and white bag.
A tulip shape was cut from 'eco' felt ( produced from re-cycled plastic bottles). Scraps from vintage linens, with coordinating fabrics and trimmings, were arranged on the felt and stitched in place. The work was then embellished with hand embroidery.
A portion of a vintage lace doily was chosen to form the edge of the bag flap. A patchwork of printed fabrics was stitched to the remainder of the flap and embellished with hand embroidery and further lace trimmings.
The back panel of the bag is a white on blue printed cotton fabric, backed with felt. The sides of the bag are blanket-stitched securely with crochet cotton and a crocheted picot edging worked into the seem. The flap of the bag is lined with white felt, edged in blanket stitch and a crocheted edging, to match the main part of the bag. The lining of the bag is cut from fabric matching the back, backed with iron-on interfacing and assembled by machine stitching. The lining is hand stitched into the bag. The strap is a length of blue, hand-made, cotton cord produced specifically to match this bag. The bag closes with a magnetic clasp.

I wanted to combine an unusual bag shape with some lovely vintage trimmings in a crazy patchwork design - all stitched by hand!
