I’ve been finishing up some more pincushions today – some are going into my Folksy shop:
There’s a mix of fabrics here – including some orange Kaffe Fassett Aboriginal Dots (one of my favourite ‘useful’ fabrics).
I’ve used some lovely organic fabrics from Westfalenstoffe for this one.
There’s a couple of Michael Miller prints here. I love the stylised floral pattern (you might have noticed I use it a lot!) – it’s called Ellie (silly name – great fabric!).
The final one took a bit longer because I photographed every stage. It’s definitely time for a new tutorial, so I hope to share the method to make this type of pincushion with you early next week. I’ve got the pics – just have to write the words now!
I love the way these Hope Valley fabrics (by Denyse Schmidt) work together.
I wont be selling this one because it’s sewn together with orange thread – just to make the stitching clear in the photographs. But if anyone would like it, please leave a comment telling me that you’d like it and I’m happy to pop it into the post (I’ll do a random select if more than one of you is interested!)… it’s really cute, but with just a tiny glimpse of orange here and there!
