The pincushion got done! It has a bit of crushed walnut shells marked by the handmade lace bit (I sewed a baggie and stuffed it with the crucshed shells, then sewed the baggie to the inside of the felted cover). The cover is handmade wool felt and the stuffing is a blend of polyfill and New Zealand wool (30-70 on polifill and wool respectively), to help keep your needles drom rusting.
A vintage button gives the pincushion a bit of a donut shape and makes it more compact.
The bowl is wood and the “kintsugi” inspired fix on the bowl is done with polymer clay. I gave the whole bowl a nice coat of grapeseed oil.
This pincushion is huge! 6 inches diameter and 19 inches circumference. This is the only pincushion you’ll ever need.
The bowl gives it stabillity, so you can pop it anywhere.
I am asking $25 plus shipping for this one. It’s truly a one of a kind! (pins not included)
