Primitive Gathering Offerings ~ Vintage Velvet

Strawberries made from old velvet with vintage felted wool for caps.

Pretty little velvet pincushions has always tugged at my heart.  Whenever I find any little piece of velvet something I snatch it up.  Recently I got lucky and found a nice little stash of old velvet at an antique store in Lancaster County.   I felt like I hit the lottery.  Making these little strawberries pin cushions out of this wonderful velvet has been such a pleasure.   They are being offered on the Primitive Gatherings this month.  If you have a moment, please stop on by and take a look.

Wishing you a happy Tuesday :)
