Pincushion Pass - What I Sent

This is the pincushion that I sent to Anna of Noodlehead, as part of the Pincushion Pass that I joined on Flickr. You can see what Anna sent me here.

I used this tutorial, although rather than adding to the tutorial, I simplified it as I wanted to make a feature of the beautiful fabric. The fabric is called Bonsai Forest, and was hand-printed in Melbourne by the lovely girls at Ink & Spindle who I was lucky to meet earlier this year.

I hand painted the stand using some of our (haha - mostly his) model paints. I had to mix a couple of colours together to get the right shade. The finished pincushion stands almost 40cm tall.

The pincushion is currently finding it's way to Anna, hopefully it should arrive in the next couple of days. I hope she likes it.


  1. Wow that is stunning Carmel - your swap partner is going to be over the moon!

  2. How could she not like it - it's gorgeous Carmel. Love the fabric you used. I bet she just keeps it for show - I know I would!

  3. Carmel that is stunning. I would be blown away if I received something like that in a swap.

  4. Stunning. What a gorgeous pin cushion. Uber ace indeedy indeedy.

  5. Wow, it's beautiful! And the fabric just sings.
