Happy Tuesday to you all! I have a sweet little rustic pincushion for you made for RRR.
I have loved anything to do with birds and nests for many years. Maybe because I feel I have that nesting instinct in common with the birdies. This time of year I like to freshen things up inside the house....clean and spruce things up. So with nesting in mind, this little pincushion's base is a bird's nest. I adhered some old muslin cloth filled with cotton batting to it and layered it with a vintage doily. From there I wrapped 2 1/2 inch Cotton blend ribbon around it and tied a big chunky bow to the top. I added some embellies....such as wood spools wrapped with more cotton blend plain ribbon and than added twill tape and some white seam binding I inked here and there for some aging. I added a couple of little eggs to the top and was done! I love the soft nuetrals and rustic chic quality to this! Hope you enjoy, Cherry
