Pincushions For Everyday Use or For Collecting Too
If you like to sew, you know this is a necessity. I can't imagine not having a pincushion handy by my sewing machine and also on my work bench.
We have come a long way since the red tomato pincushions that our grandmothers and mothers used. Even as I say that, you can still purchase those little red pincushions everywhere sewing items are sold.
I think I prefer the pretty pincushions that are made today by so many talented artists.
Today you can find all colors and shapes of pincushions to choose from. You don't have to sew to enjoy collecting these pretty keepsakes. All you have to do is enjoy their beauty.
I prefer a strawberry pincushion or a pumpkin shaped pincushion because I think you can do so much to decorate them. I have seen cushions in the shapes of animals, and they are adorable, but I don't think roses, ribbons and bling do much for a cat. Ha.
Please don't get me wrong, I love the artistry of animal pincushions and the talent it takes to make them. But, I prefer to get my hands in ribbons and roses, along with some buttons and rhinestones, that's just my preference.
So the next time you find an interesting and beautiful pincushion, take a good look and enjoy what this little gem has to offer you.
These two lovely ladies can be found in my etsy shop.....just delicious!
