this tutorial for making a classic pincushion, I put it on my to-do list. There are some magnificent embroidered examples on the fiberluscious site. Worth browsing. This is my second attempt. I did the first one in satin with dragonflies, then realised that was a poor choice because pins and needles damage the fabric. This quilting cotton is much more practical. The beaded butterfly is Maltese tatting. A one-off! The buttons in the middle on each side are handmade from glass. I think they should be protected by the padded cushion around them and safe there.
