My Newest Pincushion "Velvet Truffle" ...

 Hello my dear friends,

today I sharing another new pincushion that I have recently made but not yet shared here on Todolwen.

I just love to use neat and a little unuaual pieces when it comes to making my pincushions and that of course goes for this one as well. I had found this beautiful tarnished lid in an antique shop and it just had to be mine and so it did but it then turned out to be one of those pieces that stayed in a box for the longest time before I finally refound it and worked with it.

Beautiful vintage velvet in a lovely shade of brown made the actuall pincushion and old millinery flowers and netting from an old pretty hat became the embellishments for it. Everything just harmonized so nicely together and that is why I stopped when I did, I didn't want to over do it.

And this is what I cam up with ...

... I named it "Velvet Truffle".

I hope you like my newest pincushion and I can already tell you that it won't be the last one like this!

I have found an even bigger lid to work with and I can't wait to do so sometime in the future. I have also found some other very neat tarnished pieces to make sewing caddies with again but I haven't started them yet. But I do have more new creations to share so I will be back soon again.

So until then ... 

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

Have a peaceful, safe and creative day.
