Description

Hand embroidered roses, 'planted' against a stone wall felted using varied shades of natural, grey wool fibres with 'mortar' provided by couched, cream cotton yarn. An ideal gift for gardeners and booklovers - this bookmark posts easily!

A background of sky foliage, and the largest blooms in this design, was hand-painted onto fabric. This was backed with fusible interfacing. Details of flowers and foliage have been added by hand embroidery in a variety of threads and wools.

The bookmark is edged in blanket stitch, backed by a second layer of felt and completed by pink ribbon tails.

Length of Embroidered panel: 14.5 cm approx.
Total length of bookmark: 22 cm approx

Inspiration

I felted the background for this bookmark a long while ago after a visit to an Elizabethan house with a beautiful walled garden. I finally decided to plant two rose bushes against the wall.
