Shop Announcement:

Since I am trying to live, and stitch, according to the Reduce Reuse Recycle mantra, there is now little to distinguish this shop from my other, Lynwoodcrafts, Folksy shop. As a consequence, all new items will be listed at Lynwoodcrafts and items listed at LynwoodcraftsRecycled will gradually be moved over to Lynwoodcrafats. As usual, accessories featuring original embroidery, in association with felting, hand dyeing and fabric painting may be found 'Lynwoodcrafts' at Folksy.

A spectacles or glasses case, or pouch, in delicate pale pink, decorated with an appliqued rose motif.

A rose motif and leaves, cut from a vintage tray cloth, have been appliqued by hand onto the front panel of the spectacles case. The front panel is a lovely pale pink, herringbone weave, fabric cut from the sleeve of a recycled shirt. The top of the panel is folded over and the edge of the fold has been finished by blanket stitching in white. A crocheted picot edging has been worked into the blanket stitch to complete the design.

The appliqued front panel has been lined with interfacing. The back of the case is a green and white striped canvas type fabric, backed with fusible interfacing. The case is lined with a clasic blue print on white fabric (recycled from a vintage French sheet), also backed with iron-on interfacing to provide some protection for your spectacles. The case has been assembled by hand-stitching in blanket stitch using white crochet cotton. The case closes with a button-hole stitch loop over a white button.
