A new pincushion

A quick visit to Hatched & Patched last Friday yielded a kit for this little pincushion, called 'Maisy's Flowers'.
I couldn't resist putting it together over the weekend. A great project - quick & satisfying! It is my first project using wool felt, & I really enjoyed the rustic texture of the wool. It is a very forgiving medium!
The pincushion is filled with silica sand & lined with a contrasting cotton fabric on the back.
I can definitely see myself stitching more of these. Another addiction in the making!

  4. That is too good to stick pins into. Really it should be displayed on a doorknob or something. Love it. Cherrie
