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 pretty and detailed garden boder design, printed onto fabric, hand embrroidered and backed with felt creates this lovely bookmark.

Fabric paints were used to create the design on a 'printing plate'. Fabric was placed onto the wet design, and carefully lifted off, to reveal patches of colour corresponding to the flower border and a lovely mottled blue sky. The detailed flowers, roses, daisies, delphiniums, were embroidered in simple stitches using a palette of colours which matches the printing, using both vintage and modern threads. Matching crochet cottons have been used to blanket stitch around the edge of the bookmark which has been backed with a layer of felt.

The bookmark has been completed by the addition of tails cut from a length of blue daisy trim.

Length of printed panel - 14.5 cm approx.
Total length - 21 cm approx.

Please note: items from Lynwoodcrafts are intended for adults. This item is unsuitable for children under 3 years of age since it contains small parts which may represent a choking hazard.

Bookmarks from recycled textiles, including vintage lace and vintage hand embroidery, can be found in my other Folksy shop Lynwoodcrafts Recycled.

Inspiration

I have been experimenting with monoprinting on fabric. This one is a slightly different take on the garden designs which I love to stitch.
