Wool Felt Embroidered Pincushion

My guild, The Virginia Guild of Needlewomen, had a wonderful program this past Thursday afternoon.  Shelley Anderson instructed us on making an embroidered wool felt pincushion.  We had a choice of background felt; pink or blue. I choose blue!

We stitched on the fused circular quilt design. Then we were off to embellishing our panel with spider web roses!

Here is a picture of my top:

Now, I am to make a 4 inch muslin bag and fill it with crushed walnut shells.  When that is complete, we insert it into the pincushion and blanket stitch it closed!

It was fun, fun, fun:)

Happy Stitches,
