Finished – Tiny – Flame Stitch Pincushion

There are in fact several errors in the stitching here. However, since I kept losing them and finding them and losing them again, I decided to let them stand. If even I can’t keep them in sight, no-one else will find them…

I enjoyed using the silk thread for the stitching – but then I keep saying that, don’t I? Silk seems alive somehow, in a way that cotton, linen, and even wool, don’t.

What really surprised me was just how small the pincushion was when I finished it, using a spare fragment of silk fabric for the back. It was really quite astonishingly fiddly when it came to turning it inside out and especially when it came to the corners.

Still, here it is, done, and stuffed, and the final side closed up neatly..

Isn't It Tiny!

And then I put it in the palm of my hand and finally realised just how small it really is…

Another one for that eventual Winter Decoration Corner, I think – in my chaotic workspace, a pincushion this size would sink without trace!

  1. Ooh, it looks teeny-tiny when you see it against your hand. Close up photos are so deceiving. It would make a great cushion for a doll – you’d better watch out that Topsy doesn’t steal it!

  2. Its so cute!!! No wonder you couldn’t see any mistakes — everything is so compact. You need to make a mouse to sit upon it!!

  3. Oh so cute! And tiny! I can only imagine how difficult it was to turn it through. You are definitely right to not worry about your mistakes that you keep losing – only you know they are there!

  4. That is just lovely and where ever those mistakes are I can’t spot them.

  5. so pretty! lovely colors too. If it’s small then either turn it into a wrist pin cushion or tie it to a sewing machine.

  6. I couldn’t find them…..and anyway, it’s beautiful, they haven’t detracted from the preciousness.

  7. Oh, my, that is small! It’s beautiful, though, proving good things DO come in small packages. =)
