Welcome to Sylvie's Sewing Room.
My textile work is all hand stitched using a free-style combination of stitches that I call "drawing with threads".
If you have any particular questions or would like something designed and created specially for you, please get in touch - commissions welcome!
I photograph everything in natural light, which is sometimes a bit ... gloomy here in West Wales. So bear that in mind, and of course colours may vary from screen to screen as you know.
Postage is first class Royal Mail, packaging is recycled and recyclable where appropriate.
Please enjoy looking... and stay safe everyone.
A colourful little kingfisher friend.
Perfect for sitting on a shelf, windowsill or to keep you company at your desk. Made from felt, handstitched and embroidered.
The felt is made from 100% recycled post consumer plastic bottles, and is a colourful, strong and fade-resistant material. Filled with felt offcuts, and weighted with a few 1p coins for stability. The embroidery incorporates ceramic beads and the bill is formed from ribbon stiffened with clear nail varnish. Measures 6.5 cms high by 4cms wide and about 8cms front to tail. He weighs 35g or so.
This ornamental kingfisher is not a toy but will cheerfully keep watch - a perfect gift for a bird watcher, nature lover or someone who loves pretty things.
I love kingfishers - their colours and shape, and their reputation for being secretive, swift and deadly...
So, l wanted to make something small and colourful that might be reminiscent of these amazing birds, and here it is.
