Pineapple Pincushion Make-do

What a mouthful!. This is my latest make-do, a pineapple pincushion. Hand quilted, took me ages and I almost gave up, aged, baked to give it that prim look. I starched and aged the leaves so that they kept their shape. The pineapple stands on a lovely old hand carved candleholder, this piece of wood inspired me to make a pineapple because of its carvings.

The pineapple and leaves are made in a lovely textured wool fabric and stuffed with old wool bits to keep your pins safe. The pineappple sits on a nest of natural coir.
