Wool: Felted

Wool: Felted

Applique wool pincushion

With my upcoming adventure into bobbin lace, I decided that I needed a new fall-themed pincushion for my silk pins.

Working with felted wool is always a delight.  I love the texture of it, how it looks when you use a tweed or kettle-dyed piece. Let me just say, plaid wools make me swoon!

This pincushion is a smaller version of the one in Primitive Quilts Fall 2014 issue.  I just looked at the picture and did a free hand of the leaves and acorn, along with using a small bowl as my circle templet.

Stuffed with millet seeds I keep on hand for such a project to weigh it down and some local wool fleece from my stash.

Now to see how this bobbin lace thing works.
