One done - 2 to go

One of the items created for all the fun items I shared with you. A hand crafted pincushion!

It starts with a candy tin. Hand painted roses on velum paper with a pink satin ribbon (details below). Vintage lace lays over the green satin fabric. A satin rose with glass leaves, plus 3 pins with glass beads (details below).

Here is a closer look at the beaded pins. All glass beads and crystals.

A closer look at the hand painting. It has been a long time since I have had the paint brush out and it was fun to do. I love doing roses and these look so spring in their pinks. The trim on the rim was given to me by my MIL, I don't think it is very old, but it sure is pretty.

I enjoyed picking each element for this pincushion, it took much longer then I thought it would, but who doesn't enjoy playing in their stash.

If you like this pincushion, it is going up for sale on my Etsy Shop. All of the pincushions will be signed and numbered, just in case they ever become desirable....VBG. I will work very hard to make sure none are alike.

I am working on the other two models (completely different) I have in mind and will share pictures later this week and will also add them to Etsy.



what a terrific idea!!!! very nice idea!! *~*CAROLE*~*

I love how your project turned out! You are very creative putting all the different elements together and I can't wait to see the next two pincushions you're working on.

Gail, that's so gorgeous! What a wonderful idea! I am anxious to see the others. You need a boutique to showcase these. =)
