Details

This listing is for a CROSS STITCH PATTERN, not for the finished pincushion.

I’m not generally a huge fan of Victoriana. At least not the overly floral and foofy parts of that era. But something about this old cushion was alluring to me, so I placed a bid on its online auction, and was pleased when I won.

Undated, unsigned, stained, faded, worn, but still retaining all of its original beads. When I first received it, I was a bit disappointed, because the beads were so scratched up that they looked like plastic. It was only after one of the loops broke and I got a closer look at the edges that I realized they were indeed glass, and appear to have been hand-cut, due to their irregularity.

I can’t glean much else from this old piece, but can tell you that I enjoyed every second of reproducing it for you. I hope that you have fun with this project too.

Stitch Count: 68 x 77
Model stitched on Weeks Dye Works 30ct. Confederate Gray linen

Using flosses from The Gentle Art: 0620 Apricot Blush, 1030 Banker’s Grey, 7005 Old Red Paint, 7024 Tin Bucket, 7033 Harvest Moon, 7042 Raven, 7057 Roasted Marshmallow,
7072 Raspberry Frost

And flosses from Weeks Dye Works: 1171 Dove, 2201 Moss

Recommended Additional Materials:
1 fat quarter of plain muslin
Crushed Walnut Shells or Sawdust for filling
360 beads, 5mm length (currently out of stock in my shop, but let me know if you want the same beads used on the model and I can get some ordered for you.)
