It’s embroidered in wool on a linen fabric, and the design is a 14th century German one, the pattern of which can be found on the Medieval Arts and Crafts blog. The mustard fabric is a wool blend with a cotton interlining, decorated with simple embroidery at the seams. The pincushion has a base (8,5x9,5 cm) of cloth covered cardboard to prevent pins and needles to go through. The colours are not “me” as I said before (which is why I’m giving it away in the first place), but I still think it has a certain what’s it.
The pincushion is not medieval. I’ve never seen one in pictures, so I’ve no idea if they even existed, or how they looked if they did (if anyone knows more than me about this, please tell me). It can however give a medievalish flavour to your modern day sewing table, box or basket.
If you would like the chance to receive this, please post a comment. The giveaway is open until midnight Sunday next (19 February), after which I will randomly pick a winner.
And the colors are so very me. Thanks for making it a give-away. I'm keeping my fingers crossed...
Wow, that is gorgeous. I would love to win this! :)ReplyDelete
This is beautiful! I am a new follower on your blog; I have really enjoyed it so far and I look forward to reading what you have to say.ReplyDelete
Väldigt vacker. Jag hade gärna vunnit den, har en tendens att sprida ut mina pyssel och därmed mina nålar. Brukar sluta med att jag har en liten hög liggandes på datorbordet tills jag orkar gå och lägga dem i nålburken. Hade varit praktiskt med en så fin nåldyna som man desutom kan ha framme som prydnad!ReplyDelete
That is an amazing pincushion!! Thanks for the chance to win :)ReplyDelete
