A Fairy Mouse Pincushion.

This sweet little mouse is all dressed up as a fairy.

She wears wired and beaded purple wings, a matching neck ruffle and a tiny fairy crown.

The base of the pincushion is made from vintage upholstery velvet and ribbon.

This piece is available in my etsy shop.

These pincushions are so much fun to make. I have ideas for several more.

Two New Pincushions!!
I played all day and finished up these little pincushions.
The first one is a little mouse. Perhaps he is a wizard. He is holding a star wand pin.
The orange fabric is a vintage velvet upholstery fabric. It is the original color. Can you imagine having a couch or chair that color! Wow
This one is my favorite so far.
It is available on etsy
The second one is also available on etsy
He is made out of the same fabrics as the one I posted yesterday but put together in a slightly different way.
I was asked how big these are.
The bear pincushions measure 4" tall. The bear itself is 2.5"
The mouse pincushion measures 5" tall. The mouse is 3" including its hat.
