Wool Applique & Hand Embroidered Pincushion

The hand embroidered wool flower in a circle that I recently made; I decided to make it into a pincushion. A rather large pincushion, but I love it! I stuffed it with polyester fiber filling and added some crushed walnut shells inside at the bottom too to help weigh it down. It looks pretty and I love using it and it holds a ton of pins too!!!
My pins are quite happy in this new pincushion I made. It holds a lot of pins too! I love my Clover brand glass head pins; they are so sharp and thin that they glide easily into any fabric.
I added some rickrack on the side all the way around the pincushion too. It covered up the seam (not that it needed to be covered) and added another decorative element.

  1. I love this idea. I'm betting it would look great as a regular pillow as well. Thank you for sharing!

  3. Looks great, Daryl. I think that I am the only one that pulls my pins out of the box they came in! And it is not because I haven't seen pin cushions I like. I just haven't gotten around to it...yet.

  4. A little beauty it is! I can see how happy your pins are! :-) I like my pins in a bowl, but I use a pin cushion for my needles.

  8. What a pretty pincushion! I may have to go looking for those Clover pins. For some reason some of mine have started to get really rough edges that catch when I go to use them so it's time for replacements.

    Thanks for linking up again to Monday's Stitchery Link Party. I'm glad I got to see what you turned the wool flower into.
