I've always loved old strawberry pincushions...
Faded velvets in soft pastel hues.
I bought a pattern a few years ago and
decided to create a few of my own.
I wanted to use beautiful old linens and of course seam binding....
I love how they turned out ~
Each strawberry is filled with crushed walnut shells....
which I've heard will help sharpen your needles ~
and it gives them a wonderful weight.
Instead of beads, I decided to dot my strawberries with French knots ~
What is it about French knots, I just love their look.
I made two from a pretty damask linen then attached them to each other,
kind of like a mom and baby ~
This pincushion was created from an old damask napkin.
It had pretty gold detailing...
Three little strawberries...
they make me smile :)
Now in my Etsy shop too!
Have a wonderful Tuesday dear friends,
hugs and love,
