Description

This is my pincushion for the January Neverending Swap - mailing it tomorrow! The pattern is from the Bustle & Sew magazine. I used a Bonnie & Camille collection - forget the name- and a bit of  Lizzy House /Hello Pilgrim for the tree.

Bustle and Sew is a digital magazine - website is  http://bustleandsew.com/   but they now also sell printed copies via Amazon which was a great find for this as my printer and computer refuse to speak to one another.

The only thing I changed is that I made the base an enclosed seam- to make it stronger, but the rest of the seams are exposed and then cross stitched.  It has a small little pouch of rice inside the bottom to weight it, and then is stuffed the rest of the way with fluff. The roof lifts to reveal a felt needle holder. The sides have pockets for scissors and thread.  The applique is raw edge. The rose trellis is back stitch, green leaves are lazy daisy stitch and the roses are French knots. 

It was a fun pattern to make - will definitely make more houses :)
I received a gorgeous folded star pincushion in fabrics and colors I love from Candice - and thanks too +capetowngirl for the extra goodies - yum  Many thanks again for hosting a super swap!!!

The pincushions are so charming. I love the way you are photographing them too. Bright colors, quirky angles, intriguing arrangements. You make these pincushions into works of art in more ways than one....
