A Little White Thistle Flower ...

Hello my dear friends,

after I made my little purple thistle flower pincushion, I knew I wanted to make a pincushion but with the very subtle colors like white, off-white, beige and grey and I have now done so and that is what I am sharing with all of you today.

I only had one more of the larger pocket watch casings that had the little "ring" at the top where I could thread the seam binding through to make a crochet watch chain. It also wasn't like the plain one I used with the purple thistle. This one had a train design engraved onto the backing. At first I was a little concerned that it wouldn't look nice but it was done, I do think it suits the little pincushion after all.
And here is my newest pocket watch pincushion.

I call it simply "A Little White Thistle".

It has turned out just as neat as my other thistle pincushion did ~ just take a look!

I hope you have enjoyed my newest little making. 

 This pincushion is already spoken for but I am going to be listing my purple thistle pincushion in my Etsy shop in the next few days if any of you might be interested. Right now I am working on a few new ideas and hopefully one of them will turn out the way I hope it would. What ever does works out  I will of course share with all of you, here on Todolwen.

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

Have a peaceful and creative day.


  1. I love how the watch chain looks so similar to the stitching you used for the stem of the thistle. Two entirely different procedures, but yet so similar in look.

  2. This is just beautiful - so delicate. x

  3. Ingenious, beautiful and creative. Love it!


  4. Awesome and lovely flower that I like the most. Thanks for sharing it to make us able to design the same thing like it.
