I’ve just taken part in a pin cushion swap organised by Caroline from SewSheCan, it’s been great fun seeing all the different pincushions on facebook, some were quite inspiring, my pin cushion is here
It reminded me of a pincushion I made some time ago. The pattern was in the Australian Inspirations magazine. It was one of those things I made knowing it would never be used for its intended purpose!! It’s just too pretty!!
I embroidered the design on silk dupion, the inside support was made from a ring of cardboard. The roof is actually a length of ribbon gathered up.
Inside is a thimble holder, all embroidered with roses.
My initial is on the base which is fastened with a little glass bead and a loop of thread strengthened with blanket stitch.
I love it, the design is just exquisite!
