Shop Announcement:

In these difficult times, I continue to work from home. I am only selling items which can be posted via the Post Box which is just outside my gate. I have a stock of stamps and packaging materials and, therefore, can stay open for business without imposing extra risk on other individuals. As usual, accessories featuring original embroidery, in association with felting, hand dyeing and fabric painting may be found in my other Folksy shop - 'Lynwoodcrafts'.

Embroidered and Appliqued Trinket Box from recycled fabrics and cardboard tube

Embroidered and Appliqued Trinket Box from recycled fabrics and cardboard tube
Love this


A pretty trinket box, featuring flowers and butterflies, hand-stitched, using recycled materials.

Flowers and butterflies, cut from recycled fabrics, were appliqued onto an aqua, leaf patterned fabric. The outside of a cardboard tube, from a roll of parcel tape, was covered in wadding and then the inside and outside of the tube was covered in the same aqua fabric, hand-stitched in place. The bottom of the trinket box is formed from a circle of wadding, covered on the base by the aqua fabric, and on the inside by a blue on white patterned fabric. This gives a soft base to the box to cushion any delicate items which may be placed inside. The lid of the box is formed in the same way, with the appliqued and embroidered design being placed on the top.

The box closes by passing a 'string' of coordinating beads through a button-hole stitch white cotton loop on the body of the box.

Inner diameter of the box: 7.3 cm approx
