I've re-purposed a lovely vintage feather stitched quilt into these unique one-of-a-kind pincushions!
These would make wonderful unique gifts!
This listing is for 1 Pincushion pictured in the first 4 pics. This one measures 4 3/4" x 2".
The Pincushions are reversible; use either side!
This quilt is full of an array of fabrics that someone lovingly and laboriously made from salvaging and recycling their wool and cottons from shirts, pants, suits, and what-not into this quilt. There are a variety of fabrics from wools to flannels to corduroys.
The pieces were put together in crazy quilt fashion, as they utilized each piece of fabric and attached them to sugar sacks, feed sacks, shirting's and whatever bigger pieces of textiles that they had.
Then came the embellishment, (which also served as extra strength to hold the piecing in place)....the beautiful feather stitching!
Feather stitching is an art form in itself! And for those of you who have ever hand embroidered, I'm sure you know!
