Some pin cushions


Aisles

Recommended Posts

Just a few bits I've made over the last few months including a patchwork Biscornu pin cushion.  They are usually made in cross stitch but I decided to make a patchwork one instead.

Your pincushions are lovely. I especially like the first one with buttons. Reminds me of something my GGM would have made.

Thank you :) 

 

That one is called Biscornu because of all the corners.  Usually you see them made in cross stitch, of which I've made a few.  Someone called me a liar when I said if your measure properly they can be made in patchwork.  So I made a couple to show her how they work.  This I the third I've made in this format and I wanted to go a stage further so I added the beads and buttons.  I think lace and ribbons might go into the next one :)
