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.
A piece of sea pottery has been stitched to a background of hand-dyed felt. Simple embroidery, in vintage and metallic thread, completes the design.
Invisible nylon thread has been used to stitch a 'pebble' of sea glass, beautifully frosted and rounded by the efforts of the sea, on to a scrap of sheer fabric. A 'window' has been cut in a piece of blue, hand-dyed felt, in order to fit neatly around the glass 'pebble'. A border of French knots has been worked close to the glass. Small flowers have been stitched in glossy, vintage pink and purple threads. A vintage, glossy, cream thread has been used to blanket stitch the edge of the pendant and to create a hanging bail.
The pendant is stiffened with a layer of interfacing and backed with a layer of commercial felt - both cut to mirror the window-affect at the front of the pendant so that the back reveals the glass pebble, covered only by the layer of sheer fabric to allow light to shine thorugh. The pendant hangs from a length of purple, waxed cotton cord - tied to close.
Height of pendant: 5.5 cm approx.
Length of cord (to the centre): 34 cm approx

I love to collect treasures from the beach. I have quite a collection now and I am trying to make a point of incorporating some of my collection into items for sale.
