Pieced Pastimes: Linen and Lace Pincushion Trio

Friday, January 13, 2012

Linen and Lace Pincushion Trio

Continuing on with my fixation with pincushions, I sewed up this trio of pinkeeps.

 My vintage stash of linen and lace came in handy for this project.
 Some of these lace scraps came from things I had sewn for my children when they were just babies. Where have the years gone.....
For this heart pinkeep, I kept it simple with some rosettes, some cotton lace and some vintage buttons.
 I made two of the rosettes with linen and one with muslin to create some shading.
 For this rectangular pinkeep, I used a couple different laces with a single linen rosette.
 To dress up the lone flower, I aded some tulle, two buttons and 3 pearls.
 It turned out that this square etui is my favorite of the three.
I overlapped different laces and embellished it with a couple rosettes, a single vintage button and some silk ribbon gently twisted and tied off with some tiny pearls.

This little trio reminds me of my children, but not only because of the materials used. They are similar in some ways and very different in others, just like the individuality of each of my children.

Until next time ~ Suzanne.
