|Top: Large uncut vest piece|
Middle: One long cut strip
Bottom: The first rolled strip pinned in place
|This consists of 3 strips rolled together.|
It seems like just the right size now.
Ruler and Idaho State Quarter added for perspective (thought you might like to know!).
|A few stitches through the center and back with a doll needle to keep the strips from moving around.|
|To avoid the problem that a round pincushion would have--rolling around the work table--I placed a former sweater seam at the base. The white "beads" are actually pins to hold it in place while I stitch it down.|
|Green embroidery thread seemed a great addition to the midnight blue and the gray.|
|Pins removed; cushion base in place.|
|The finished project with pearl-topped pins and the doll needle, along with a green ribbon.|
Since I made the ribbon holder yesterday I felt bound to put a ribbon on today's project.
|A Good Wednesday to you.|
