Pincushions on parade

Mysismademe has a pincushion parade link up and I was just going to link up one post but couldn’t decide which one so I figured I’d make a post with lots of pincushions in it Smile

First of all, if you don’t know it yet, I’ve been hosting a pincushion swap for several years, you can look here for lots of eye candy

Here’s the ones I’ve made for the swap THIS year

enter your pin is from embroidershoppe here

The purse is an embroidery file from embroideryshoppe here

owl was a felt pattern from etsy here

The cat was from quiltartdesign


I recently embroidered a bunch of these for a friend after I had given her a pincushion like this one which is from embroidery llibrary here

machine embroidered pincushion:

Here’s more pictures of pincushions I made for the way in 2015


Here’s more pictures that I made for the swap from 2014

Biscornu pincushion pattern is from here

made this with my Go cutter

Then from 2013

and 2012

owls were from a Fons n Porter magazine where it was made in wool, I made it in cotton.

I have all my pincushions on two shelves above my ironing board and recently I removed the ones that I made to make more room and I did some “knolling” with blue pincushions


here’s my shelves


I think that’s the end of the parade!

Hope you enjoyed the eye candy Smile

-and maybe next week I’ll have a new sign up for the next round of the pincushion swap! (It runs 3 months at a time)

What a fun linkup!

Oh wow! I'm amazed at the number of pincushions you've made. They are all precious. I especially like that one that looks like a yellow flower with the he green button in it. Is that paper-pieced? thanks for posting all those pincushions for us to drool over.

What an amazing number of pincushions you have made! I love your blue collection. Oh to have enough of one colour to be able to group them like that! I'm not sure which would be my favourite but I do really like the bird in the bowl.
