The Perfectly Pleasing Pincushion Parade 2017

Hello everyone,


Today I am joining Ida at My Sister Made Me Do It to join in the fun with this year´s pincushion parade.  Lots of interesting pincushions to be seen by the different participants and prizes to be won.

As I took part in the two previous parades, most of my collection has already been seen and I don´t have very many anyway, however I made the Mr Minion pincushion a few weeks back for my seven year old grandson who was here visiting and as he certainly doesn´t need a pincushion, he used Mr Minion´s upright arm to store his wristbands.


The pattern and very clear instructions can be found here.

I have three favourite pincushions, one a simple design and finished with lots of mother of pearl buttons which I showed on my blog last week, another rather different redwork triangle which I stuffed with rice and is nice and weighty and another embroidered design by Danybrod which I only grew to like when I had finished the embellishing.




The next two pincushions are from last year´s parade.  The May Flowers pincushion, a free pattern from Needle Knowledge found here, and my little hedgehog.



 Two hardanger patterns by Mabel Figworthy and sewn into ornaments always seem to get used as pincushions as they hang in different bedrooms.



I don´t think I have anymore to add to my parade only maybe a photo of the worst sewing addy  which I made a couple of years ago and really hate, so less said about it the better.


If you would like to show your own pincushions and join in the parade, just link up, you have until the 16th, see you there.

  2. Well done on the Minion! My favourites would have to be the red work one and the little hedgehog - I have a think about echidnas so hedgehogs are very close lol. And I'm afraid that I do like that little sheep sewing caddy, although I can't quite work out its base rather than feet ( do they hold needles or something in there?)

  8. Your pincushions are just stunning. I love the one with the buttons and crochet on it. It's much too elegant to use as a pincushion.

  9. Lovely all of them - my favourite though has to be the pretty MOP button embellished one closely followed by the redwork and the hedgehog. xx

  15. You hate your sewing caddy? I think it's really cute - and wonderfully functional too. Seeing the one with the buttons has given me an idea - might have to make one (or ten!) to use up some of my button collection. Enjoyed my visit - thank you.

  16. Such a clever idea to make this little Minion for your grandson. They juts love them at that age. And it is even used for something as can be seen.
    All your pincushions are wonderful, a great parade. My favorite would be the one you showed last time with all the mother of pearly buttons all around. I love this button idea.
