Some more finished projects.

Old pincushion I did not make but I made the bottom one based on the older one. Improved it by adding plastic inside so the pins don't stick through the bottom of the pincushion.

That pin cushion is a good, usable design. Nice work on all your projects! I save sawdust for my pin cushions. Also use raw wool--my favorite. What do you use?

Here is a button I made. The center is felted wool and the petals are ribbon yarn. It is hooked on 32 count linen with a size 6 crochet hook. I think I will make a few; they are a good lap project.

Here is a link to other ideas of what to stuff pin cushions with. On this one. I was just trying to test the pattern so I just used batting in it. I also made a pattern for a smaller pin cushion so I can do a wrist strap with velcro. I haven't finished one up yet. We have been busy cleaning up all the branches that came down this winter and spending a lot of time outside.

 

I also like to use wool roving, but I am thinking of using the crushed walnut shells as they sell them in one of the fabric stores near me.

 

I love your button, very interesting.

The thing I like about raw wool is the oil content, which kept pins and needles from rusting. The walnut shells are supposed to keep them nice and sharp. I like the idea of an insert to keep the needles from disappearing in the cushion. It's amazing how many needles one finds when tearing apart old tomato cushions!

Not sure if I'll get something made before the end of 2018, but I couldn't resist these horse panels at the store today, plus a couple coordinates and the white at the bottom doesn't go, but is tone on tone cowboy boots, so I had to have it.
