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.
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!
