Pincushions For Pat ~ No.2 Is Now Finished ...

Hello my dear friends,

yesterday I was able to finish another pincushions for the lovely Pat.
This time I used one of the two little vintage tea strainers she had sent me.

Today I am sharing the pincushion that I made from the tarnished strainer that is on the right in this photograph. This lovely tea utensil has now become a darling pincushion, all dressed up in raw silk, a piece of an old crochet doily, seam binding and a vintage sparkle and all those in subtle colors. I added a seam binding frill to this creation to give it that little special touch again and it worked out perfectly. This little tarnished pincushion can either lie down somewhere or be hung by the seam binding that is attached to it's handle. Overall a versatile and pretty little creation.

And here it is ...

... I called it ...

... 'Just Hanging Around And Looking Pretty'. 
( I don't think, I could have chosen a better name for this pincushion!)

I just love this little tarnished piece! It couldn't have turned out any prettier in my eyes.
Again I sent Pat a photograph of it, to see if she liked it and she told me, that she had the same idea as I did of a hanging pincushion. Neat how some things are just meant to be!

I hope you have enjoyed my newest creation and it would nice if you visited me some time again.

I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.

Have a peaceful and creative day.
