Sold out! Snowman Pincushion

If primitive blues and snowmen make you smile, I’ve got you covered! I took a piece of old toweling with a worn out spot (I love those little spots in old textiles, don’t you?) and stitched a snowman wearing a top hat. I hope the camera lens was able to pick up the distinction between embroidery threads and the background toweling as some areas are very close in value to each other. Then I stitched the piece of toweling to a really sweet blue cotton print. All of the fabrics have been slightly aged for a vintage look. Stuffed with scraps of wool and cotton. The pincushion is signed by me on a piece of twill tape sewn to the underside. The piece nicely doubles as a bowl filler. It measures approximately 5 inches by 6 inches. The price is $38 and that includes shipping. There are two available so you can choose “A” or “B”. Scroll through photos to see both choices. Thanks for stopping by. Happy Holidays!
