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, 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.
