Recycled Wool Pincushioncomments (0) April 22nd, 2009 in gallery
This earthy little pincushion was made using scraps of wool I had felted myself and a wee bit of wool embroidery thread. It is stuffed with wool roving so pins stay put. While it is my own design, it is obviously your basic tomato pincushion, rethought in earth tones.
