Not everyone is a sewer – but everyone needs a pincushion I reckon! And one of these makes a perfect little gift for a budding seamstress or tailor. It can be a reminder of home for someone heading back to University or for someone away from home at the moment. They are very easily packed and popped in the post.
There are three designs in this collection:
– A Manx Three Legs embroidered in red on a grey linen background
– A Bumblebee (pretty sure it’s Manx too!) on a yellow honeycomb on a beige linen-look fabric
– A chicken (my beloved Margo Chicken) on a green linen background
Each one is stuffed with polyester stuffing and each one bears – on the back – my logo and a tiny symbol reflecting the subject.
Each hexagon measures approximately 5 x 5 inches (3 x 13 cms) and was designed by me (the chicken and the bee are not my designs but the backgrounds and theTriskelion is all my own!)
* There is a postal charge for this item but packing is free as I try and recycle packing materials wherever possible.
N.B. Pins and accessories shown are not included – but I bet you knew that already ….
So what have I been up to lately? You’ll find some lovely summer bags on the site and also some cute phone pouches which are ideal when you want to carry a little more than your phone and a card or two. These are great - and I plan to make lots more!
I've also been using more Ukranian Embroidery designs on bags. This one is my latest in black leather with an adjustable strap.
I've also been experimenting with Needlefelting and this lovely Kindle case is the result.
By the way, if you are a visitor you might like to know that everything on my site can be purchased online and shipped to your home address.
(If you live outside the UK you may wish to contact me first - overseas postage can be prohibitive these days so best to talk about it first.
FOOTNOTE: You may have noticed that most of my items are marked 'one only'.
This is because everything I make is handmade - and handcut - from the bottom up! I make what I love and hope you will too!
