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 small keepsake box shaped like a cottage with a red roof that lifts up.
Made from felt and hand embroidered, Tulip Cottage features flowers made from little beads and the door has a bead door handle. The walls, floor and roof have been reinforced with pieces of card between the layers of felt, and all handstitched together.
The cottage stands about 5cms to the roof ridge and the base is approx 3x5.5cms. The inside base is about 2x4.5cms, so there's not much room for treasure! It's definitely bijou, even for a tiny fairy!
This little cottage box is NOT a toy but would make a quirky, colourful gift for someone who likes tiny, handmade things.
I love little houses and little boxes, and this is both!
I had an idea to make some small houses that open into a box and experimented until eventually this was made. The card inside the felt layers makes it sturdy enough to conceal something tiny inside - a piece of jewellery perhaps, or some secret notes...
