A lovely little mixed media Sewing Bee created from a vintage wooden cotton reel, handmade honeycomb, needle and felt bee.
I made this piece from a vintage Sylko wooden cotton reel, the original label is visible on the top. The thread is a deep wine red colour described on the label as 'Carmine'.
The little bee, I hand stitched with thread, felt and wire. The honeycomb is made from painted and varnished paper and filled with honey coloured resin. The piece is completed with a threaded sewing needle.
The piece measures 4.5cm high by 3cm wide. It will be sent carefully wrapped in tissue paper and boxed.
Uk P&P is free, a tracked service is used.
