Beautiful older textile art envelope piece (from 2014 if I remember rightly) that I'm making available in my online shop for the first time.
The small envelope was a slow-stitch textile art piece that I worked on for many hours over several days. It's made from a vintage knitting pattern, which has turquoise cotton and linen fabric stitched to the inside and is further embellished with the words 'pick up the pieces', made from paper and sewn in place with my sewing machine. The pure silk suffolk puffs were all sewn by hand. It really was a labour of love.
It can be read both as picking up the pieces of fabric to make the work and also as picking up the pieces metaphorically to carry on with life...
