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 phone case, or cosy, has been entirely hand-stitched and embroidered with a harvest design.
Sky blue wool fibers have been felted to a background of 'eco' felt (produced from recycled plastic bottles) to produce the background for the 'harvest' design panel on the front of this cover. A wide variety of yarn snippets, carefully collected from other yarn projects, together with tiny felt leaves, have been added to represent the cornfield. Stitching in fine cotton has been added to the sky to 'stabilise' the felting and the poppy field has been carefully couched over for durability. The cover is edged in blanket stitch using threads to match the areas of the design. Simple embroidery stitches have been used to embroider poppies and daisies.
The case is lined in a printed blue flowers on white fabric, backed with iron-on interfacing. The reverse of the cover is a pale blue and white striped canvas fabric. The case is seemed with blanket stitch in blue crochet cotton for durability. The case closes with a crocheted loop - using the same blue cotton thread, over a blue button.
