Rosebud Pincushion


Rosebud Pincushion, originally uploaded by ivoryblushroses.

I love the big pincushions that I've been making, but have also wanted to make some smaller ones. This sweet little pincushion uses the metal lids from frozen juice concentrate instead of CDs!
Stitching 01
It was a much smaller piece to work on, so the embellishment went quickly. Since it was a small piece, I was able to devote time to making lots of french knots without getting too overwhelmed by them!

Once I had assembled the pincushion, I realized that the top needed something else. At flea markets and antique shops, I've been picking up baggies of ribbon roses and so I gathered an assortment for the top.
Bottom
The bottom is a heavy poly/wool felt. I've covered the join with a velvet ribbon and little rose colored beads.

I'm so happy with this little confection of a pincushion! I'm thinking that rather than be used for sewing needles and pins, I'll use it on my dresser to hold a few special pins that I wear with my blouses now and then!
