Puzzle Ball Pincushion

Do you remember the puzzle ball pincushions I shared on my blog a few years ago? I still have them and have wanted to make some myself for a long time. This week I finally sat down, figured it out, and made one using vintage velvet!

This puzzle ball pincushion was entirely stitched by hand. I used some of the vintage velvet that I use for my pumpkins. It is orange and brown... perfect for your autumn or Thanksgiving decor. It measures about 5" across.

I'm not sure how many more I will make for a while as they are very time consuming... especially when hand-stitched! :)

Having said that, it is something I can do in the evenings, so who knows? I may have several more made before the holidays get here!
