This week I have been so happy to be sewing with felt again after the last few weeks of sewing with funky costume fabrics (faux leather Loki costume and slippery QE1 dress!). While at the quilt show last weekend, I began to work on two bluebird pincushions so that people stopping at my stall could see my process. I got those finished up this week and also three hydrangea pincushions and needle books. One of my very first blog posts was about this design! You can read it here. I still love this design. I love how it has so much texture and I think the color combination is pretty.
I use the little flowery tray all the time for my sewing projects. It's the one I got at the Japanese store in San Jose. Each hydrangea pincushion has approximately 50 handcut flowers on it! Cutting little flowers is a good use of scraps of felt.
I usually use an existing item to make sure I get the design fairly consistent but I'd sold all my hydrangea pincushions and needle books at the weekend so had to use the images from my computer. You can see the newly listed pincushions here.
I also listed more hanging owls and the few embroidered hanging pumpkins I had left after the weekend.
