Description

A beautiful design of purple, lilac and magenta flowers, liberally embroidered and felted, decorates the front of this glasses or spectacles case, cut from recycled skirt tweed.

Fabric, cut from a tweed skirt, was fulled (felted) by a hot wash machine cycle. Hand-dyed wool and silk fibres have been used to needle felt flower shapes onto the front panel of the bag. All the felted flowers have been completed by hand embroidery in cotton and wool. The background of the design has been heavily embroidered with many other flowers and leaves in purples, pinks,lilacs and greens.

The case is lined with a French cotton fabric,backed with interfacing, in a blue/grey on white print. The case seems are blanket-stitched in navy crochet cotton and the top edge is finished in the same way. The case closes with a stitched cotton loop over a beautifully coordinating, chunky, vintage button.

Length - 17.5 cm approx
