About Shirley Rainbow

Shirley Rainbow

Hand embroidered fun lavender bags, home decor and accessories

Hello, I'm Teresa, welcome to Shirley Rainbow!

I work from my attic at home, in Nottingham, where I'm surrounded by my stash of crafty bits, fabric and yarn. You can usually find me tucked away up there with my cat Nancy, while my children are at school, drinking tea and eating biscuits while I work on one of my many 'works in progress'. I make embroidered wall decorations, framed in embroidery hoops or with a crocheted frame, and add embroidery to zipped purses too. I particularly enjoy making little felt pouches with lots of character and stuffed with lavender.

I have always been creative and enjoyed drawing and painting as a child. At school I enjoyed Textiles, and went on to study Textile Design at Nottingham Trent university, specialising in Embroidery.

I'm inspired by the world around me- houses, the weather, a good cup of tea, flowers, pot plants, birds and the odd cheeky character. I love making things by hand, as I enjoy the slow process of making. I try to reduce waste wherever I can, by using yarn felt and thread scraps, or recycled toy filling to stuff my decorations and felt characters. I use a variety of vintage threads, trims and embellishments; I love seeing something old and discarded being turned into something new.

You can find me on social media through the links below.

I hope you enjoy looking at my shop, thanks for popping by.
