Welcome to my shop where you will find accessories created from vintage and recycled linens, lace and fabrics together with a selection of vintage and upcycled sewing supplies - including vintage lace. Accessories featuring original embroidery, in association with felting, hand dyeing, fabric painting and crazy patchwork may be found in my other shop 'Lynwoodcrafts'.
A beautiful and unusual trinket box fashioned from scraps from an embroidered vintage cloth, bright golden yellow felt, vintage buttons and a cardboard tube.
Three fragments of embroidered linen have been combined to cover the 'walls' of this pot - embellished with vintage lace, the embroidery repaired and enhanced with some additional orange 'spots'. The lid outer was a more heavily embroidered fragment needing only a little extra embroidery. The lid and base have been cut from card taken from recycled greetings cards and the body of the box is a cardboard tube taken from the centre of a crochet thread ball. The box is entirely lined in a wool blend, bright yellow felt (bought as recycled offcuts from commercial production) and this is also used for the outer base.
Bright orange crochet cotton has been used to hand-stitch the box and to crochet the picot trim which decorates the lid edge. Cords crocheted from this cotton provide stays for the lid. The box closes by winding a crocheted cord (trimmed with an orange, ceramic bead) round two vintage buttons.
