A friend saw the black one - very gothic and hard to photograph - and the green one long ago and wanted 2 more for Christmas gifts. I made the blue and red ones yesterday. Thought I'd show them before she gets them.
The black one is made from an old velvet dress and there's spidery flowers embroidered all over it. The beads are black pearls and other beads. There are silk flowers and feathers on top. Hard to see I think in a picture.
The red one is wrapped in a faux jewelled necklace and the playing card is just a paper (not even cardboard) mini Queen of Hearts card.
The Dreams label on the green one is from a clothing label and on top is a silk brocade yo-yo. The blue on has a Chinese coin over the loop on top and an old earring, beads and funky yarn.
All are made from old velvet clothes. All are stuffed with carded wool. I never use fiberfill. Wool is better on the pins. Pincushions are one of my favorite things to make.
My husband swears these links will work, but I'm a web idiot and they are not showing up in the preview so who knows? http://i13.tinypic.com/47dlgzp.jpg
