I’m hosting a little pin cushion swap via the Molly and Mama Facebook Page. It’s to celebrate the fourth anniversary of my little biz (which is a pretty special time for me!). My lovely contributors have created a range of gorgeous pin cushions that are just amazing. But before I show you what they’ve been up to, I thought I’d share my own contribution – A Strawberry Pin Cushion Set.
I have a thing for strawberries at the moment. Our own strawberry patch is bursting with Winter berries. And they really inspired me to create a sweet Strawberry set using my favourite medium… yep, you guessed it… wool felt! I had a helping hand from a tutorial created by Sedef from Down Grapevine Lane. You can see her strawberry tutorial and pattern HERE. But instead of machine sewing a fabric strawberry, my set is entirely hand stitched in wool felt.
I love the detail on the blossoms. And the gingham ribbon really works well.
The needle book was made by sandwiching a simple piece of white felt between the front and back of the strawberry.
And to finish off the set, I just had to create a miniature strawberry to top one of my sewing pins. It’s super tiny!
It even inspired some more fruity creations. This little peg doll is wearing a teeny apple cap. I’m visualising a whole range of these for a new pattern! What do you think?
What are you sewing at the moment? I’d love to see!
Happy stitching, Lauren x
