So Shabby Pink Pretty Pink Rose Pin Cushion

I shared with you in an earlier post that I really do love to sew. I have some sewing notions that were actually my mother's, so they are rather old and not necessarily pretty.

My mother was an excellent seamstress and her talents were not wasted as she put them to use for me and my sister. I believe she would have been a fantastic fashion designer as well. Even as a young girl of 10 or 11 years, I would sit for hours and watch her sew.

She made a lot of little notions for me. The most unusual was half of a large walnut shell stuffed with cotton and pink fabric made into a pin cushion! It had a tiny pipe cleaner handle and a bow tied to the handle.

Well, this is much larger than a walnut shell and prettier than the little pipe cleaner handle. I have this one for sale on our website So Shabby Pink. I'll be making more during this spring and summer.
