May Flowers Pincushions with Eileen Hull

Wow, has it really been almost a month since my last post?? I really have lost all sense of time. Everything is blending together. At least one thing that marks the time is the blooming going on in my garden! More and more flowers are coming up and my irises are going to town.

The theme over on Eileen Hull's blog this month is May Flowers and the Inspiration Team is off to a great start sharing beautiful projects of all sorts featuring flowers. I created some more embroidered teacup pincushions using wool felt flowers cut out with some of Eileen's dies.

I love finding old teacups at thrift stores and garage sales and upcycling them into something new!

I use cotton flannel for the base and then cut the flowers out of wool felt. Buttons and embroidery are added for detail!

I'd also like to mention that Eileen Hull’s newest e-book, Pocket Notebooks with Eileen Hull & Friends, from Bella Crafts Publishing is now available! Click the photo below to buy yours now to get your creative juices flowing! There are over 50 projects to inspire you, complete with instructions and links to the designer’s blog posts or videos. You will be amazed at the versatility of Eileen’s Pocket Notebook Die and the endless creativity of all the designers’ uses for it. I am very honored to have several projects included. =)
