that I have left over after working on a project.
They are just too pretty to throw away.......
I wanted to make something unique, but also "usable".
I decided to make pincushions...........working with my hand embroidery and beads.......
and placing a vintage button in the center.............
and also giving each one a distinct name.
I designed this one from the joy I feel as I walk along my gardens
gazing at the flowers that grow there as well as the butterflies and bees that dart in and out.
I placed one of my favorite antique buttons in the middle.
This one I designed by piecing together many of the spring fabric scraps and then embellishing it with flower beads, pearls and a vintage button.
I designed this with darker nostalgic scraps and embellished it with flower beads, pearls, tiny glass beads and a vintage button.
I designed this with a mix of floral and homespun fabric scraps. I incorporated vine and leaf embroidery with beads and a vintage button.
I wanted to capture a cold crisp morning with different hues of embroidery, tiny glass sparkling beads and clear beads along with a rhinestone button.
I think it would be wonderful for a seamstress to have her own personal pincushion , so I designed this one with a letter, tiny glass beads, pearls, flower beads and a rhinestone button in the middle.
They are all so pretty and unique..........
eye candy with a useful purpose.
So tell me,
what do you do with all of those little scraps that you have left over?
I would love to hear!
