Plant dyed pincushion
These squishy little pincushions are one offs, each is slightly different.
They are made from plant dyed velvet - the golden colour comes from tansy grows in the studio meadow and was used to dye some dead stock cotton velvet - the soft tones work well with the rounded shape.
The velvet is embroidered in cotton thread with a meadow design and the top and bottom are made from scraps of plant dyed linens.
Approximately 6 cm high, 7 cm diameter.
Filled with ground walnut shells.
Each pincushion comes wrapped in recycled Kraft tissue and packed into a little card box.
