I am trying to live life in general, and crafting life in particular, according to the Reduce Reuse Recycle mantra. From now on, new items stitched from recycled materials will be listed here. Vintage linens and fabrics, re-stitched into unique gifts and accessories, may still be found at my second Folksy shop 'LynwoodcraftsRecycled', however these will gradually be moving over to this Lynwoodcrafts shop .
A pretty meadow design decorates this hand-stitched and felted bookmark.
Sky blue wool fibers have been felted to a background of 'eco' felt (produced from recycled plastic bottles) to represent the sky and green fibres for the meadow area to produce a background for the meadow design. Snippets of yarn have been felted to the meadow to represent mixed meadow grasses. Stitching in fine cotton has been added to the sky to 'stabilise' the felting. The bookmark is edged in blanket stitch using threads to match the areas of the design. Simple embroidery stitches have been used to embroider daisies and tiny clover flowers.
The bookmark is backed with a second layer of 'eco' felt. Ribbon tails complete the design.
Length of felted panel - 15 cm approx
Total length - 22 cm approx

Bookmarks from recycled textiles, including vintage lace and vintage hand embroidery, can be found in my other Folksy shop Lynwoodcrafts Recycled. This link will take you to the shop section - https://folksy.com/shops/LynwoodcraftsRecycled/collections/263596-notebooks-bookmarks-and-handmade-books
Lynwoodcrafts' embroidered and felted designs have proved very popular. The design has been used to decorate a number of items. Each individually hand-stitched meadow design is unique in composition.
