"Felt " for ABAA


Well the last couple of days have been manic after getting a phone call to say our caravan had sprung a leak from the mains water pipe! As its down in Cornwall it was a mad dash to try to sort it out especially as we're hoping to go there for Easter. Fortunately its all sorted now so I'm glad to get back ....and get stuck into a challenge !
Heres my "Felt" pincushion for ABAA this week.
Basically its a square of felt, folded into a triangle, stuffed and stitched ...and the "ears" tied with ribbon. The flowers are stamped on felt and cut out....and then fabric-glued to the cushion. (Stamp is a "Home and Heart" one and ink was Rangers Distress in Aged Mahogany) A piece of lace and a few pretty coloured dressmakers pins for decoration, and there you have it !
This could also be made to hold lavender or pot pourri I guess.....anyway...I hope you like it !
