strawberry pin cushion

I recently picked up a really pretty vintage pale blue velvet pin cushion with a base of scrolling brass vines (not pictured here). That has set me off looking for pretty velvet pin cushion. There’s so much that can be done with the design of pin cushions, yet everyone seems to have the same little red tomato. Why not a gorgeous giant red velvet strawberry?

heart cushion

This heart shaped cushion is also really pretty.

Or a very practical pin cushion / pin box. Making something like this seems like it would be a fun and easy project, no?

That’s really pretty indeed. It looks like something you would find in a little store in a little street somewhere in Paris :-)

i have an old dark honey velvet pin cushion that sits in a lacy silver container that belonged to my great grandma. i love it, it makes sewing that much more enjoyable!
