New Babyshoe Pincushions

Hello my dear friends,

isn't it lovely what you can do with an old pair of baby shoes? These were my latest find  a few weeks ago. Needless to say I already knew they would become pincushions. What can I say ~ I am addicted to making them!

This time I used the pansies and violets that I had crochet and tea stained a few weeks ago to embellish the shoes. I also added some cotton ribbon that I had thrown into the stain before it finally had to go down the drain and it came out in two colors ~ blue and purple ~ how neat! I hope you enjoy!

Have a peaceful and creative day,

Karen B.
