Welcome to my shop where you will find accessories created from vintage and recycled linens, lace and fabrics together with a selection of vintage and upcycled sewing supplies - including vintage lace. Accessories featuring original embroidery, in association with felting, hand dyeing, fabric painting and crazy patchwork may be found in my other shop 'Lynwoodcrafts'.
A pretty heart-shaped turquoise brooch, needle felted onto a background of felted, recycled wool fabric and enhanced with hand embroidery.
Hand-dyed wool fibres in shades of aqua have been needle felted onto a scrap of felted, recycled fabric taken from a skirt. A scattering of mohair fibres in a purple tone have been added. The heart shape has been outlined in chain stitch in turquoise cotton thread. A filigree pattern has been stitched over the heart in fine turquoise thread - this design has been enhanced by a scattering of French knots in turquoise and metallic blue threads.
The brooch is stiffened by a layer of thick 'felted interfacing'. The edge has been finished in blanket stitch in the turquoise thread. A brooch pin is securely stitched in place. Pictured with other similar brooches listed separately.
PLEASE NOTE: I would describe the colour of the felted heart as turquoise and the edging thread is turquoise. I have another computer which represents it more accurately. I have struggled with image processing but, on my screen, the images should be slightly 'greener' to give a true turquoise.
Width - 5.3 cm approx.

Items of embroidered jewellery may not be colourfast - care should be taken to remove them from clothing before washing.
The ethos of this shop is very much about the upcycling, recycling, repurposing,reusing, of textiles and other materials. I had some wool skirts, no longer needed by a family member, they felted well and this brooch is the first item to be made from the fulled (felted) fabric. I have a wonderful collection of hand-dyed fibres and blending them to create this and other items has been a pleasure. Hand embroidery has finished the design well I think!
