I finished one of my travelling projects. Here is a traditional pincushion. These are commonly sold as souvenirs even though my teacher told me with disgust that those ones are made in China. I like this design and plan to make some other variations. When I have access to a sewing machine again, I have ideas for a large pillow based on the same design. It is made of squares and rectangles.
It is made from silk and stitched by hand with silk thread. The bead on the top was given to me by my teacher.
