Little Sunflower Pot PinKeep!

This little Pin Keep, Pin Cushion is perfect for teacher gifts, Mother's Day, or any occasion to give! It's made from a 2" terra cotta clay flower pot with a 3 1/2" primmed up fabric painted sunflower top, stuffed real plump to hold all your sewing pins!

I painted to the sunflower then stained it up real prim, added a little moss, then added a piece of cheesecloth around the pot! The pins stick nicely down into the sunflower center! The entire pot is 3 1/2" tall.

Primitive Mammy Pin Keep Doll!

Just in time for Mother's Day!

My new MammyPie Pin Keep, pincushion, is made from my own pattern out of painted muslin! She's wearing a cotton print dress that has a print of baked goods all over! She has a muslin stained apron, red and white checked do-rag, and she's holding one of her famous Cherry Pies! That's where you keep the pins!

But you don't have to use this cute little doll as a pin cushion! She's great as a shelf sitter!

Her face is hand sculpted and hand painted and she has some really nice wooly black hair under that rag!

In her pocket is a wooden rolling pin that no baker could be without!

The doll is 8" tall! She's weighted to stand real nice as you poke your pins into the pie!

The Pie is 2 1/2" in diameter and is hand painted and made from painted muslin! The Rolling Pin is 1 1/2" long with red painted handles!

This is the perfect gift for any seamstress, pin keep collectors, or doll lover of any age!
