Joy Of A Garden Pincushion

Anni Downs' 'Joy of a Garden' Pincushion from Homespun No 84 Vol 11 No 5...sure was a joy to make! I used a mug tree, that I already had, for the stand, and as I don't have alot of felt, I just made do with my fabric, where Anni had used felt.

I nearly have as many pincushions as I do bags now, but still use my dressing gown to put my needle in, when I do sewing of a night time!lol!

Bye For Now

Hi Lisa, It doesn't matter that you still stick your needle in your dressing down, what counts is that you have lots of bags and lots of pincushions!! lol. Kind regards, Anita.

Hello Lisa,

Just stunning. Maybe you could cut up your dressing gown and turn it into a pincushion!!!! Can't wait to see what you are working on next. Have a great weekend.
Happy Days.
