Description

A pretty needle-felted heart motif, enhanced by hand embroidery, on a background of tweed fabric, forms the front panel of this pincushion.

A length of brown tweed, recycled from a skirt, has been felted (fulled). A heart motif has been needle-felted onto this panel using a blend of hand-dyed lime green and orange fibres, overlaid with a layer of hand-dyed silk. The felted heart has been outlined in back stitch in bright green cotton thread. Using a fine, orange thread, a filigree pattern has been embroidered over the heart motif. Further decoration has been added in the form of French knots in orange and green threads.

The back of the pincushion has been cut from checked recycled shirt fabric. The back and front panels have been blanket-stitched together.

The pincushion is filled with polyester wadding.

This pincushion is posted free of charge to UK addresses.

Inspiration

I have some lengths of recycled and fulled (or felted) tweed skirting. I also have a large collection of fibres - much of it hand-dyed and including wool, mohair and silk. I am enjoying needle felting and this pincushion is one of the resulting items.
