freehand embroidered floral fabric bookmark – green & pink
these bookmarks are quite substantial, measuring approximately 25 cm x 6 cm (10” x 2.5”)
the stylised flowers are cut by hand from cottons & linens, they are layered & then appliqued onto pre-washed cotton calico.
the detail is stitched freehand using the free motion embroidery technique, and they’re further embellished with hand embroidered french knots.
this bookmark is made entirely on a domestic sewing machine – no computerised malarkey - everything is cut, stitched and handmade, with care, by me, ensuring each item is unique, well made and securely constructed.
due to the very nature of free motion embroidery & handmade, each bookmark will vary eeeever so slightly.
these bookmarks are made up with heavy weight calico, stiffened with interfacing, and the edges are neatly top stitched.
i prewash all of my fabrics so they should not shrink when washed.
my design is based on an original drawing by Little Black Heart, and is used under license.
