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?
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?
