I can't beleive its already pincushion Tuesday. Before I begin, I just want to say thank you to the folks out there that have bought my pincushions so far. I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed making them. I'm very picky on the china cups or creamers that I buy to make my pincushions with and I've been having trouble finding that perfect one that will turn into a pincushion. So this weekend I decided to sew some pincushion from the loads of wool that I have on hand and they turned out pretty good. So for this week until I find that little porcelain masterpiece, I"ve made flower pincushions.
These little flowers mesure about 3 1/2" in diameter and about 1 3/4" high. The two sides were machine sewn together from wool material so they will not dull your needles going in the pincushion. Each has a cute little button to make the center flower. They really were a treat to make.
On a different note, I"ve been working on a small insert mat with my new Snapdragon frame, wich I love, love, love. So hopefully will have that up for sale by the weekend.

You will be able to mix and match the pieces and make your own embellishments to decorate needle appliques, penny rugs with your wool projects, scrapbook pages, card-making projects, gift tags, a brooch, hair clip and the ideas are endless.
Please note that due to lighting effects, monitor's brightness, contrast settings and etc, there could be some slight differences in the color tone of the website's photo and the actual item. I have other primitive colors that I will be posting this week in a color chart so you can also pick and choose your colors to make your own flowers.

I have two of these footstools in my shop left over for anyone who would like to hook a small mat and put it on top of a footstool or a stuffed footstool. Below is an example of a mat that I hooked, then put on to this foot stool once it was stained.
I believe the wood is pine and was made by a local gentleman who no longer makes them.
The dimensions are: 12" Long X 9" Wide X 8 1/2" High

The pincushion is needlefelted with a turquoise color BFL wool. I tried taking better pictures, but its much prettier in person.
