Fabric Pear & not a partridge in sight!


I started this several weeks back ever since seeing one on
I finally finished it today!

It's a very simple pattern and easy to sew.  I did mine by hand, but it would be a lot quicker to machine stitch.


I've kept mine simple without embellishments as the fabric I used is quite busy.  The leaf and stalk are felt with craft wire running through them so they can be shaped.

I think it'll make a great pin cushion.

I love it. I have made a few myself out of old quilts, I may need to make a few more, they do make wonderful pin-keeps. Hugs Mary

Wonderful pin cushion. I've been looking for inspiration to make one. And your pear is just great!

Sherry, you are such a talented so and so! (or should that be sew and sew LOL). I was lucky enough to win one of Effie's because I'd never get around to making one myself. Have a safe, warm and happy Christmas! xxxx

It would also make a great ornament never mind a pin cushion! Although you'll get oodles of pleasure from your pin cushion same as I have over the years I've had mine, which is nothing like your pear but now I'm waffling.
I just love the material you've used as well, and your pear is perfectly formed, It'll make you smile everytime you get it out, it's certainly making me smile!!
