Pincushion by Beckie MooneyhanKatie Horn
For mending tired clothing, Beckie Mooneyhan created a pincushion with a cheerful design scheme using Irish flame stitch. The carnation motif on this pincushion is Mooneyhan’s own design, loosely based on originals. The pincushion is made from crewel yarns colored with period dyes including indigo, turmeric, and cochineal. The pincushion is stuffed with unprocessed “greasy” wool: the natural lanolin contained in the wool ensures that needles and pins won’t rust.
