Victorian Style

Wanted to show you what I have been working on lately
with fabric and pretty ribbon

I call them my Victorian Pincushions

I wanted to put together colors
that I don´t normally do

and create some untraditionel pins too.
This one is made of old upholstery fabric with a vintage button on top

and here´s one made out of papier mache, painted cobber
and decorated with old lace and a green twine.

blue paisley on top
pale pink at the button and
a sweet green pon-pon ribbon

I think they came out quite cute
I did have a lot of fun making them.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend
Take care
