Here is a pretty pin cushion; made for you to enjoy the beautiful embroidery, and also to use as a holder for pins and needles. Function plus beauty is always welcome in any sewing room! This could be the perfect little gift for a crafty friend who loves to sew.

I love the linens which were traditionally embroidered in the UK during the early 20th century. During that time many women embroidered their household linens, brightening their homes with colourfully stitched flowers. Here I have recreated a traditional 'wild rose' floral design to embellish the pin cushion. I have hand embroidered the flowers in pink and green threads on a cream cotton background, and used a complementary green polka dot fabric for the back of the pin cushion.
