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.

Description

This glasses case has been entirely hand-stitched from a panel of 'crazy patchwork, hand embroidered with a white hearts motif.

Scraps of colour coordinated fabric, some recycled - others off-cuts from other craft projects, many of them vintage prints, have been 'felted' to a background of 'eco' felt (produced from recycled plastic bottles) using an embellisher machine. A couched heart motif, in white crochet cotton, has been worked in the centre of the patchwork panel. Cross stitches, also in white cotton thread, have been worked over the exposed edges of the patchworked scraps for extra durability. The case is edged in blanket stitch in white crochet cotton. A crocheted, picot edging has then been worked into the blanket stitch.

The case is lined in a blue and white striped fabric - backed with iron-on interfacing. The reverse of the cover is a navy and white striped 'canvas' fabric. The case is seemed with blanket stitch in a white crochet cotton for durability. The case closes with a crocheted loop - using the same white cotton thread, over a white button.

Dimensions (excluding seems):
Depth - 17 cm approx
Width - 9 cm approx

Inspiration

I have a fascination with small landscapes - this case is one of a small series reflecting springtime.
