This busy little pincushion is bursting with colour and is designed to add a little charm and whimsy to your sewing space whilst allowing for plenty of pin storage.
This is one little house I would love to live in.
The enlarged and slightly flattened roof area is made using a single layer of cotton linen fabric to allow for the easy insertion of pins. The sides and base of the house have three layers. A cotton linen outer and lining with Vilene H630 fusible fleece sandwiched between the two to add a little more structure and support.
A little cushion containing poly-pellets is sewn separately and sits on the base of the pincushion before the pincushion is firmly filled with polyester fibre. This gives the pincushion a little added weight and ensures that the little pellets do not migrate.
Each side of the house is then decorated using various techniques, trims and embellishments. These include the use of DMC and Anchor perle 8 cottons, dmc metallic thread, crochet lace, nylon lace, extra strong sewing thread, Windsor and Newton promarkers, decorative beads, buttons and charms.
The windows and door are made with fabric from 'Folklorique' by Moda.
The buttons, beads and charms are securely stitched using strong thread. The little bell above the door is sewn loosely, again with strong thread, to allow for movement.
