Vintage Fabric Pincushion

Like this item?

Made from vintage fabrics, this sweet little pincushion is perfect to have to hand when sewing, being both useful and pretty.

It has been made in the shape of a pillow, from a pretty pink floral vintage sheet and a vintage white damask tablecloth. Both items no longer fit for their original purpose, they have been given new life as an ideal sewing accessory.

The front of the pincushion has been embellished with fragments of vintage lace, vintage crochet, and a vintage green button. I have added hand embroidered cross stitches and little french knots using vintage pink thread. The back of the pincushion is made from more of the damask tablecloth and is simply embroidered with cross stitches and a little heart with a french knot.

The pincushion measures approximately 15cm long by 9cm wide and stands about 3cm high. It is filled with soft polyester filling to give a firm, plump shape, and I have added a scoop of lavender to give it a gentle fragrance when used.
