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.
This glasses case has been entirely hand-stitched. The front of the case is an embroidered and appliqued, felt scene of a springtime village in miniature - complete with tiny daffodils.
The front of this glasses case has been stitched from 'eco' felt - produced from recycled plastic bottles. Tiny cottages are lined up along the street. Their doors are tiny scraps of coloured felt, their windows are stitched in cotton thread. There are a few trees, just coming into leaf and tiny daffodils are crammed into narrow planting areas. In the foreground, a cheerful post box, with its own collection of daffodils, is situated on the edge of the village green.
The case is lined in a blue and white striped fabric, backed with iron-on interfacing. The reverse of the cover is a blue and white striped canvas fabric. The case is seemed with blanket stitch in a crochet cottons for durability, blue and green used for different parts of the design in order to tone. The case closes with a crocheted loop - using the same blue cotton thread, over a blue button.
Dimensions (excluding seems):
Depth - 16.8 cm approx
Width - 9 cm approx
I have a fascination with small landscapes - this case is one of a small series reflecting springtime.
