Once upon a time I saw photos of antique and vinatage pincushion dolls and I just fell in love with them and knew I had to have one. Sadly they were way beyond my budget so I started looking for a pattern to make one myself.. I was not very succesful but I did realise that I could perhaps do one in crochet . And when I think crochet it is usually mini crochet.
I am still pretty pleased with the pattern I designed and the way it turned out. She really looks well standing on the table next to the sewing basket., does not she ?
American Miniaturist did publish my pattern for this little darling in issue 81. So if you want to make one yourself try contacting them for a back issue. She is done in tatting thread and I used a 0,60 cm crochet hook.
Yes I did make the tiny pins with the colored heads too.
