Shop Announcement:

In these difficult times, I continue to work from home. I am only selling items which can be posted via the Post Box which is just outside my gate. I have a stock of stamps and packaging materials and, therefore, can stay open for business without imposing extra risk on other individuals. As usual, 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.

Description

A spectacles case featuring a windswept and atmospheric, felted and embroidered moorland scene This glasses case has been entirely hand-stitched.

The front of this glasses case has been made from 'eco' felt - produced from recycled plastic bottles. Using hand-dyed wool, a moorland design and blue sky have been felted to the background using an embellisher machine. The sky and moorland areas have been 'stabilised' by simple hand stitching in fine threads. Details of some heather clumps and fronds of new bracken have been felted in place using snippets of yarn from other projects. Further details and textures have been added by French knots and other simple embroidery stitches in wool and threads. A windswept tree, stitched in black cotton, stands on the horizon.

The case is lined in a blue and white floral fabric and inter-lined with interfacing. The reverse of the cover is a dark green needlecord fabric. The case is seemed with blanket stitch in crochet cottons for durability, light blue and dark blue used for different parts of the design in order to tone. The case closes with a crocheted loop - using the same pale blue cotton thread, over a grey button.

Dimensions (excluding seems):
Depth - 16.5 cm approx
Width - 8.5 cm approx
