Another embroidered felt brooch from 'Feltissimo'

I just love making these brooches. I wasn't sure about the colours on this one but know I've embroidered it the colours seem to have blended well.

Pretty handmade felt and vintage fabric bag.

This bag is made entirely of hand made felt and does not contain any seams.

Merino wool fibres were used to make the felt in orange, burgundy, turquoise and peacock blue colours

The front is decorated with vintage fabric which has shrunk when felted creating a wonderful pebble effect. Vintage wooden coloured beads have been added to the design.

The bag secures well with the use of a large antique press stud.

Size - With the handles - 31cmshigh x 21cms at the widest point ( 12.25" x 8.25")
- The bag without the handles - 18cms x 21cms (7" x 8.25")

Wedding day cards made from handmade felt, vintage fabrics and embellishments.

The 'Wedding day' card I made for my son and my daughter in law.


Handmade felt with machine stitching, embellished with a vintage white feather, wax flower buds, 1930's sequins and embroidered french knots created with antique pure silk thread. All from the Rag Rescue stock.


 My mum saw the card I had made for Dan and Emma and asked me to make her one, so here it is.
This card has wonderful embellishments added to a base of handmade felt with vintage French fabric creating a window.
 I now have two more requests, one more wedding and one for a 100 year birthday.


I do take requests for custom made felt cards whatever the occasion, so just email me at
sales(at)ragrescue(dot)co(dot)uk using the normal format.
