Pure, white and subtle are three words which best describe this beautiful little pincushion.
The use of perle threads, silk ribbon and lace provide delicate visual interest and texture.
Kona cotton fabric is used to make this little pincushion.
There are three layers to the top facing, Kona cotton fabric, Hobbs polydown wadding/batting and cotton muslin. The design was then handstitched and includes the use of quilting threads, DMC and Anchor Perle 8 and 5 threads, 7mm silk ribbon, lace trim and 3mm Miyuki opaque beads.
The completed design is then machine sewn to the base fabric (the base fabric remains unlined) and is firmly filled with polyester fibre.
The little indentation at the centre is provided by the clear decorative bead which is secured with perle 5 thread. The ends are knotted, clipped and left as a little tuft on the underside.
