Vintage Crewel Needlework – A Gallery

A quick post tonight, it’s late but I’ve been so keen to post these images of beautiful embroidery.

Crewel is the art of hand-embroidering wool thread. Crewel work is an ancient art, with examples found from all over the world.  The art has since come in and out of fashion, adorning bed canopies and pillows during the Victorian era, and decorating purses and clothing during the craft revival of the 1960s. There is a great post on The Etsy Blog about Erica Wilson if you would like to read more about crewel.

I’ve been searcing Etsy for some vintage retro examples of crewel work and here are my favourites.

Fabulous Vintage In Situ – Castle Crag, Sydney

Cate & Simon have a beautiful waterside house in Castle Crag on Sydney’s Lower North Shore. The house is 1970s design with lots of light and is very well suited to vintage retro fabric. Cate makes beautiful quilts and and has lots of her gorgeous works displayed. In all the house has a very warm and eclectic feel, it’s really lovely.

We went for colours that complimented a red feature wall and the other neutral wall and carpet. After much deliberation we chose two Bevis fabrics in the same print ‘Tatton’ in two colourways, yellow and brown, this fabric is from the 1970s. The central piece is called ‘Contessa’ but as there is nothing else in the selvage I am unsure who the designer is. The ‘Contessa’ cushions finish the look.

Each piece is 80 cm wide by 90 cm tall.

As you can see the finished wall art is very striking. Cate & Simon love it and so do I!

Brighten up your child’s bedroom with Fabulous Vintage

My 3-year old son Oscar loves colour. His bedroom is a lovely shade of green and very bright and calming too. I wanted to make the room colourful yet not over do it with the retro look. On his bed is a striped duvet cover and 3 gorgeous vintage fabric cushions. Above the bed is some splendid yellow and green bunting also made from vintage fabric of course.

The fabric for  the wall art pictured below was originally a pair of cafe curtains. I do have more of this superb  fabric so do send me a message if you are interested in wall art or cushions made from it.

To finish it off a gorgeous lampshade. The metal lampbase was a cheap and cheerful Ikea purchase.

Oscar tells me he loves his colourful bedroom!

If you would like a free fabric consultation for your child’s room (or for yours!)  please contact me.
