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 pretty, knitted, felted and embroidered pincushion, featuring a lovely heart motif.
A random-dyed mohair yarn, in shades of magenta, blue, grey and green, has been chosen to knit a square panel, the rows (and, consequently, the 'stripes') being worked diagonally. The panel has been felted - or, more correctly, fulled. Using hand-dyed wool and silk fibres, a heart motif has been needle-felted onto the knitted pattern. The heart has been outlined in chain stitch using a magenta, cotton thread. A filigree pattern has been stitched, randomly, over the heart in a fine magenta thread. A scattering of French knots has been added in a space-dyed,shades of pink, thread - this gives a little more interest and texture.
The back of the pincushion is grey eco felt. The pincushion is blanket-stitched together using the same burgundy thread which outlines the heart motif and is gently stuffed with polyester filling.
