    Thank you Fran! I cut a square of the turquoise velvet. Made a little hole in the middle and slipped over her head. Folded the velvet in half (with the head on) and slightly stuffed her upper chest and arms . Hand sewed down a 'tube' shaped to make the arms. Pushed in hands and made the cuff tight to hold them. Hope this is of help?????

    Thank you Kathryn That helps a lot. Now how to attach to the bottom of the pin cushion. I have porcelain head which I have put on a plastic cone & made lace dresses for them also crocheted dress to make an angel but am not too good at sewing. Sorry to bother you so much but I really love your creation. You are very talented. I have booked marked this & whenever I open this pc I come to stare at the beautiful pincushion you made. Thank you again

    She is so pretty. Are your pin cushions supposed to be used? I don't think I could stick pins in her, she is too sweet

    No bother at all I love helping you! After I made her 'skirt' and stuffed it, I cut a hole in the top, pushed her velvet torso in the hole and did some hand stitching to hold her in. I hope this helps you. She is not on any stick or pole or anything, if that makes sense? Thank you so much for liking what I make!

    I sew pretty much everyday, it is my passion and solace. I like to use what I make, it makes me happy! This will be a lovely reminder of my dear Mummy!

    Wowzers! I thought we had some beautiful and intricate pincushions in the swap here on the board, but nothing like this one. She is beautiful!

    Hi Kathryn Me again. I remember some where in my pile of stuff I have a cloth body that I was suppose to add the head & hands & then stuff it. I am going to try & use that. I can't get over how beautiful she is. I hope this thread goes on for a long time since I get notice when it comes on. that way I remember to come & look at it again. bye for now
