Australian Designer Melissa Grant of One Day in May. For the Love of Violets ~ hexagonal pincushion
Finished size – 6 – 6½” across.
This sweet pin cushion is a celebration of violets. It has a combination of embroidered pockets, gathered panels, dimensional felt leaves and double sided fabric flowers. It also features simple embroidered motifs, and a cluster of double-sided fabric violets and felt leaves. As well as small pockets to store your packets of needles, embroidery scissors and threads.
The pin cushion sides consist of 3 embroidered bumble-bee pockets and 3 gathered panels. Back-stitch, satin stitch and a few French-knots are the only stitches you’ll need to embroider the sweet bumble bee pockets. The base is pieced with triangles and pulled in at the centre with a button.
“For the Love of Violets” is the perfect project for those who like to combine their love of embroidery, patchwork and dimensional embellishment.
The Kit has the fabric, felt and pattern. Not included are threads, button, interfacings and filling for the pin cushion.
