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, and atmospheric, felted and embroidered design featuring a wild moorland decorates this pincushion.
Sky blue wool fibers have been felted to a background of 'eco' felt (commercially produced from recycled plastic bottles)to represent sky. A variety of hand-dyed wool fibres, in shades of purple, pink, indigo and lime green, have then been felted in interlocking patches to represent the 'waves' of undulating heather patches in a typical moorland. Stitching in fine cotton has been added to the sky to 'stabilise' the feltingl. Details of the design - a windswept tree, some new curls of bracken and clumps of heather have been added in simple embroidery.
The embroidered landscape has been stitched to the back panel, also of eco felt, in blanket stitch, using threads to match the areas of the design.
The pincushion is firmly stuffed with polyester filling.
Width - 7.5 cm approx
