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.
Detailed hand-embroidered textile brooch featuring a summer Wild Rose bloom - a little piece of wearable art!
This little brooch was stitched carefully by hand with individual strands of embroidery thread onto a soft cotton background. The pale pink petals and gold of the centre are complimented by the soft mossy green velvet ribbon forming a frame at the edge. The leaves have the distinctive jagged edge of the Rose family and there is a touch of gold thread glinting in the centre.
I photographed it in natural light to try and show the colours accurately, but remember that screens do vary. The brooch measures 3.5x4.5 cms and has a brooch pin with a safety catch on the back to keep it nice and secure. It will be sent in a little white organza bag.
A lovely keepsake gift for someone special, or maybe a treat for yourself.
During our local walks, we've really enjoyed identifying all the beautiful hedgerow flowers, and this is one of our favourites. A Wild Rose, also known as a dog rose (apparently the roots can be used if bitten by a rabid dog!!), or a briar rose (much better name). I love the simplicity of the petals and the subtle blend of pink to white in the middle, and the lovely delicate scent.
They are an unmistakable sign of early summer, and this little brooch is a year-round reminder of summer.
