A classically pretty cream and white pincushion, carefully created from lovely vintage embroidery on linen.

The front panel of the pincushion has been stitched from two vintage table napkins - one ecru and one cream. A vintage lace trim has been added. The design is completed by the addition of an embroidered flower (stitched in vintage linen thread) and a vintage shell button. The back of the pincushion has been cut from white 'eco' felt (produced from recycled plastic bottles). The back and front panels have been blanket-stitched together.

The pincushion is filled with polyester wadding.

Height - 8 cm approx

I found a bundle table napkins at a local antique centre. They were all 'coffee' coloured and there were several different woven damask patterns. The triangular panel on the top of the pincushion is a cut from a cream napkin. I was intent on making something pretty with them.
