The Beaded Pin Cushion
I found the embroidery for this little pin cushion a long time ago. It was at least last summer if not longer than that that I was ‘surfing the net’ and came across this little beauty on the Country Bumpkin website. I remember I had been over there because I had just bought an issue of their embroidery magazine, “Inspirations”, and having been thoroughly impressed by it, was inspired to go have a look-see on their website. Anyway, I found this freebie over there and promptly downloaded and copied it. And there it sat on a shelf in my sewing room collecting dust until I recently gave my sewing room a good cleaning and re-discovered it. So I stitched it out. It is little and didn’t take long.
When it was finished, my first thought was to make a biscornu out of it. But then I saw a sweet little pin cushion on one of my embroidery groups that had been beaded all around the edge by inserting beads into a blanket stitch and that really intrigued me. It was something new to learn, so that is exactly what I did.
I must say that I love the resulting pin cushion. I am going to use it for my embroidery needles!
Enjoy, Merry Gay
