For the Love of Violets


The top of the pin cushion features simple embroidered motifs, and a cluster of double-sided fabric violets and felt leaves. A decorative piece, this design is also functional with small pockets to store your packets of needles, embroidery scissors, threads and other notions.

The sides of the pin cushion consist of 3 embroidered bumble-bee pockets and 3 gathered panels, which add a lovely textured feel. Back-stitch, satin stitch and a few French-knots are the only stitches you'll need to embroider the sweet bumble bee pockets. The base is pieced with triangles and pulled in at the centre with a coordinating button.

“For the Love of Violets” is the perfect project for those who like to combine their love of embroidery, patchwork and dimensional embellishment.
