A PINCUSHION DESIGN CONTEST! YAY!

I came across a pincushion design contest over at the Arrow Sewing Cabinets' blog. (http://blog.arrowcabinets.com/2011/04/no-tomatoes-pincushion-contest.html)
BTW: I LOVE their Olivia cabinet!
I figured I would whip up a sample of a vision I have for a pincushion. I would like to offer this in my store when it opens in July.

Drum role please.....
Presenting "THE ROYAL PINCUSHION"!





I used some vintage gold lace, an off-white velvet fabric to die for and "topped" it off with a gold button and a vintage rhinestone on top! It's my first sample and I may have to tweak it a bit but it looks pretty close to what I envisioned! I hope people like it!

I'm also part of the blog hop for this contest.
You may have hopped over my way from the Kluless blog http://katherineuhrig.blogspot.com/
NOW you should hop on over to A Patchwork World http://apatchworkworld.blogspot.com/2011/05/terribletutorial-tuesday-tin-can.html for the next blog in the hop to see a wonderful design!

Keep it fancy and carry on!
