Since becoming a burgeoning seamstress I have been looking to find myself a very special pin cushion. I tried to make one at STITCH one evening and I was completely made fun of by the many more talented members of the group. This happens frequently, as I am not as crafty as I might envision myself. It was supposed to be an embroidered Chinese lantern, but it was thought to be some sort of fish gills. Okay, so I'll find one online, maybe I'll even try to pass it off as my own! I really like this one on the left from Amy Butler. It's really cute, but homemade enough looking, that they just might buy it. I am in complete and utter awe of these pin cushions below - that is art.
and on the right flowering buds from Wee Wonderfuls.
yet worried looking (don't put those pins in me!) pears from Loobylu.
