Without further delay…
I felted an old sweater for this one. Notice the piece I added to frame the embroidery – it came from the neckline of the sweater! It is a 5.5″ x 4.5″ pincushion, stuffed with polyfil, so it is very light. For contrast, I made a rose using ric-rac… As with my previous pincushions, the embroidery pattern came from one of Anni Downs‘ books.
Before I go, two important things…
