Needle case. Two rose leaves.
This is a unique individual one-off functional art piece.
This needle case is made from Italian woolen suit fabric , then eco dyed with leaves from my French garden. Two different types of rose leaves and Sumac leaves , they have left their memory on the fabric.
I have then hand embroidered onto the surface to compliment the botanical images, this is edged with blanket stitch by hand .
Inside the woolen pages are made from a repurposed fine tweed skirt.
The lining is vintage floral patterned cotton lawn.
This piece of work is both functional and elegant , combining diverse components in a cohesive manner.
