Pattern booklet for a collection of pincushions to celebrate our love of stitching, red samplers, the iconic tomato pincushion, and the sewing bird of the Victorian era. When displayed all together, this set of smalls makes a charming vignette. These are all quite small in size and fit in the palm of one's hand. This booklet is the same size/format as Jelly Bean Jubilee, Jack O Lantern Jubilee, and The Snowball booklets. Everyone is thoroughly enjoying these fun and quick little stitches. As always, I've included a favorite recipe and some history of these antique sewing accessories for some fun reading. Two designs from a few years past, I Collect and Queen of the Needle would be wonderful additions to this collection of smalls

Models are stitched on 36ct Vintage Country Mocha from Zweigart. A quarter yard will be sufficient to stitch and back all 7 designs. Designs are stitched with hand dyed cotton floss from Weeks Dye Works, The Gentle Art and Classic Colorworks as well as DMC.
