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 pink and blue flower brooch, needle felted onto a background of felted, recycled, wool fabric and enhanced with hand embroidery.
Hand-dyed wool fibres in shades of blue and pink have been needle felted onto a scrap of felted, recycled fabric, taken from a skirt. Bright yellow fibres have been used to felt the centre of the flower and this has been enhanced by French knots in yellow cotton thread. The centre of each petal has been embroidered in magenta thread The flower shape has been outlined in back stitch in bright turquoise blue cotton thread. Hand-embroidery on metallic threads completes the decoration of the wings.
The brooch is stiffened by a layer of interfacing. The edge has been finished in blanket stitch in the blue thread. A brooch pin is securely stitched in place.
Width - 5 cm approx.

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 one of the first items 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!
