Pincushion

Description:

A small heart-shaped pincushion of cream cotton sateen, overlaid with a cover of crochet lace worked in cotton yarn in shades of greenish yellow. Both sides worked in the same pattern. Beige grosgrain silk ribbon attached to top of pincushion, tied in bows. A short length of ribbon, now attached at one side only, suggests that the pincushion originally had a loop at the centre top, for carrying or hanging. Hand worked throughout. Lightly padded with cotton kapok or similar.
