Newest Kitty Cat Pin Cushion for Sale!

SOLD I just loved how this turned out especially with the softness of the wool felt! I just posted her up for auction on ebay. You can check her out by clicking on the link.*memory*making*mom If you don't buy on ebay and are interested in her, I can cancel the auction for you as long as she hasn't been bid on. I have a detailed description and more pictures in the auctions. Feel free to leave me a comment! hugs, Ellen
I think of Frank Sinatra when I look at her because of the beautiful blue eyes.I used pretty fushia seam binding ribbon along with soft aqua millenary flowers and pink stemens. On the side there is a small vinguette of vintage off white plastic buttons. They are tied with petal pink embroidery floss.

She would fit perfectly in any home! I added some pretty pins too.
I also have several pin cushions posted in my etsy shoppe. I will be posting them on this selling blog to give you an option.

handmade Sweet Chocolate Brown and Pink Cupcake Pin heavenly...
Today I have a new cupcake pin cushion from my line of pastry pin cushions. I used high quality cotton moda fabrics. I decided to make a chocolate cupcake. I used a brown fabric with pretty mulitcolor polkadots. Don't they look like sprinkles or colored sugar? I used a vintage cherry red button to top it off. The cupcake is in a vintage tart candy mold. The base of the pin cushion is made with a soft pink fabric with white polka dots and a stripped and floral design. Click on picture to get a close up of this pretty fabric. Around the base of the mold, I used millerary flowers in matching colors (light pink, dark pink, purple, aqua, and yellow). The base is sectioned into six using brown embroidery floss and an old button is on the bottom. All my pin cushions are stuffed firmly with premium polyester fiberfill. Pin cushion measures 3 1/2" tall x 3 1/4" diameter.
You will also receive 6 pins; two are pearly leaf pins ( aqua & red). The other pins are handmade. I used a pretty pink and pink roses with green leaves Lampwork bead on a faux pearl corsage pin. I also added a white bead. Two pins are smaller with one faux pearl bead each. And the last pin is a pink fabric yo yo with a pink ball pin. Don't these make pretty pin cushion jewelry!!!! My handmade pins are not intended for sewing use but more for pin cushion decoration.
Price: $16.99 + $6.00 Shipping & Handling (U.S.A.). International buyers contact for shipping quote. Insurance is optional ($1.70), but always recommended. All my handmade items come wrapped sweet & pretty.
