Making an embroidered pincushion.

embroidered velvet handmade pincushion craft supplies

These squishy handmade pincushions with their freehand embroidered meadow are one of my favourite things to make.

They are a good size, small enough to be transportable, large enough to take a lot of pins.  The upright shape stops them from getting lost on your sewing table.

This one is made from a headstock cotton velvet that I then dyed with tansy flowers from my garden.  The meadowy flowers are embroidered freehand on my sewing machine (if you want to learn how to do that, I have a very good course here).

The pincushion is filled with crushed walnut shells which give it weight, stop it falling over and take the pins really well.
