Vintage / Antique style Make do pincushion or Velvet Theorem Fruit
life-sized, about 4 1/2" tall plus stem. Base is 3" high.
Hello! I am so pleased to offer this makedo pincushion. I love it! It is my first PEAR, recreating the look and style of antique ''theorem'' fruit. My own pattern, cut freehand, in the most amazingly soft and gorgeous pale golden yellow silk and cotton velveteen. [antique milliners velvet.] It is unbelievably soft and the nap or fuzz of the velvet changes color, as you turn the fruit.
The stem is a found real piece of wood, grey-brown with a hint of lichen. Leaf is velvet with a hand dyed wool backing.
The pear is filled mostly with cotton stuffing, but the base is filled with fine sand to keep it upright.
***Currently I am showing the pear with a crystal candlestick base, but it is not attached. If you want it attached you must let me know when you buy it.****
This is such a pretty makedo. Perfect for prim display or for your sewing room; a lovely gift for the sewer or quilter in your life, too.
