Pincushions - Trio of Strawberries!

I'm working on some Christmas presents..and creating these opulent velvet pincushions. They would also work nicely as Victorian style tree ornaments!

These are life-size, the largest has a baby strawberry attached. All three are filled with emery so have a great "weight" to them. All are created from velvet and feel so nice!

All are adorned with beads of glass, crystal, or metal.

The larger has a silk ribbon flower motif at the front accented with tiny glass beads and Krenik metallic braids. The photo does nothing to show off the subtle differences in the 3 greens used, or the lushness of that velvet with silk flowers! Velvet leaves are on the baby and large strawberries.

The single red one is beaded with black crystal flat spacers and glass rocailles. The leaves are glass beads.

Both have beaded hanger tops with metal spacers or caps. The photos are not near as good as the real things, but the sun is setting here so the "natural light" is not so good.

The set could be divided so you could "gift a friend" and still have one for yourself!

I only have supplies for five of don't wait too long if you are looking for a really pretty gift for a sewing buddy, co-worker, friend, or yourself!

You can find them at my Etsy shop!
