WW1 SWEETHEART PINCUSHION…

 

 

2018 sweetheartWhen Leslie Marsh, photographer and artist, posted that she was putting together a class to make some copies of WW1 sweetheart pincushions, I knew I had to make one from polymer clay.  During WW1, convalescing British soldiers and sailors created sweetheart pincushions to send home to their loved ones.  My sweetheart pincushion is made from Makin’s Clay®.  I used seed beads, sequins, headpins and lace to make mine.  Thanks Leslie for the inspiration and history lesson!

  1. It’s beautiful, Patricia!

  2. This is so cool! I love the picture transfer and the details that look like stitching.
