My first pincushion is made from a Lottie Laychak (Sweetpeas Primitives) pattern that I got permission from her to size him down to about 4 1/2 " tall. He is made from a vintage sugar sack and stuffed with rags and some fiberfill. He has been stained, baked and sanded to age him. He is sitting atop an overdyed wool Ohio Star pincushion that is a pattern from Carol Woodard (Woodland Primitives) that I shrunk down to about 5 1/2" wide. He is holding a carrot made from a piece of overdyed wool that I hand sewed and then hand sewed it to the bunny so she is holding it. The whole piece is about 6 1/2" tall and 5 1/2" wide and has a metal disc, covered in the same wool as the pincushion, added to the bottom as a weight. Kindly asking $55 plus shipping. Thank you.
My other offer is a small mouse made using a vintage feedsack and a TFC Folkart pattern. He has been stained, baked and sanded to age him. He is sitting on a small round overdyed wool pincushion with a small overdyed wool strawberry. I hand sewed it and added a small silver cap to the top and hand stitched tiny seed beads on it. I added some vintage lace to the bottom and he has a tiny piece of lace and a mother of pearl button sewed on top of his head. The whole piece has then been glued on top of a vintage mouse alpha block. He is about 5" tall and about 3" wide. Kindly asking $45 plus shipping. Thank you.
