Pincushions and a Needle book

I made a few more Anna Maria Horner Wildflower pincushions as gifts recently. You can find the pattern here. I love mine and have to say I could not sew without it! I really do not know how I had sewn for so long without one. You can’t really tell how big they are in the picture but they are about six inches wide. I used some Joel Dewberry Heirloom and a little Simply Color for those purple petals. I fill the pincushions with crushed walnut shells with a little bit of polyfill in the bottom where you need to hand sew.


I decided to make a little ruffled needle book to go with the pincushion that I was giving my Mom. It was so tiny that I decided to add a page to it to allow some more needles to fit! I found the tutorial for this one here at luvinthemommyhood. It was super quick and easy.

Oh my goodness! They are so darling! This is the first I've seen that pincushion, but it will make a wonderful gift.
