Butterfly Needlework Nibble Finished
My latest Needlework Nibble finished! This is a little pin pad, and I suppose it's meant to have pins stuck in the sides, but I can't bear to do that with this silk. I'm afraid it will rip the fabric too much. I dug up some gold beads to add a bit more bling.
The pin pad is a foam core that is sandwiched between two cards with batting and the needlework or backing fabric attached. All the fabric is supposed to be glued to the cards, but I found it much easier to lace it with threads. It was fairly time consuming for such a little project but it did go together nicely. It's only 2 inches square, and it makes a lovely little thing to look at. It's just a tad too big to use as a scissors fob, so for now it will be just little pretty thing.
