I have Dorie to blame thank for my getting involved in another swap I had no business signing up for. But I truly do love making pincushions and it has been a while...so, this time I made one for the Scrappy Pincushion Swap on Flickr (check out all the beautiful creations that have been posted there).
I went with a design I used to make a while back (three years ago already?!!), using felt flower shapes I punch from wool with a sizzix paddle punch.
It looks pretty boring with just the leaves showing.
I received my pincushion in the mail last week from Solidia. She is a master sewer, and I couldn't be more thrilled with this beautiful pincushion she made for me. I just love the fabrics she chose, the colors and of course adding that sparkly brooch to the center gives this piece a bit of glamour too.
