A lovely traditional Christmas pudding with brandy sauce and a sprig of holly ready for your holiday sewing table.
I'll reproduce (as much as possible) the pincushion shown. variances are natural with handwork.
At just under 2" tall these little pincushions look great and fit anywhere, even those little sections in your embroidery floss box. Great for any sewing kit. Add a velcro dot to the bottom and to your sewing machine shelf for a convenient place to put you pins while sewing.
Having been making these a few years now I find one of these to be essential for sewing kit I have and others who have bought\/made them as well agree! They are super handy and a simple way to always have your pins at hand.
Not only pretty, these are practical! With the recycled soda bottlecap base even your smallest pins and needles can't punch through and needles won't get lost. Each is densely packed with polyfil to be solid so your pins and needles won't loosen over time or fall out if you drop them. They stay in!
Also great for home sewing and tailoring the bottlecap inside helps you hold it tight without 'needle bites' as they fit in the crook between finger and thumb, keeping the rest of your hand free to turn and pin.
----- Photos may show some off colored fibers on the surface. Fear not - they're not messy, it's just stray felt fibers. These are almost not visible at all with the eye (my camera just seems to see them REALLY well) These recently arrived back to me shipped in a ziplock bag from being shot for a magazine (Thread's Sew Easy) so they all kinda rubbed on each other in shipment. I'll take a little post it note to it to remove any stay fibers. ----
