I have long liked patchwork. I love stitching my own designs and enjoy the work of others. The idea of using scraps and re-using un-worn parts of previously loved items appeals to me. I have my daughter's baby and toddler dresses safely stored for an 'I will find time one day' project - precious memories revisited. Many of my favourite items on Flickr are examples of crazy patchwork - wonderfully inventive, heavily embellished and very time consuming.
There are many beautiful patchwork items to admire amongst the Folksy stores. I wanted to share these with you. Two of them are from Poppypatchwork, my 'new discovery'. Click on any item to visit it on its Folksy shelf.
