This charming pincushion design was created for The Alpine Experience in July 2016. It was designed to match the needlecase and scissorkeeper in the same series. It has been created to fit onto a medium sized base – depicted on oak. It is featured in my book – Embroidered Country Gardens.
A basic design is screened/printed onto the line/cotton blend fabric. This is then added to from the design sheet supplied, if you so choose – the stitcher thus adds as many flowers as they would like to create their own garden. Backing fabric, needles, instructions, stitch glossary and colour photographs are also included.
It is stitched using 5inch or 13cm hoop.
The design measures 3 1/2 inches or 8.5cm in diameter – http://www.lornabatemanembroidery.com/shop/english-beech-hoop-5-inches-or-13cm/
All of my pattern and print kits are beautifully packaged in cellophane bags, making them very suitable as gifts.
