Pear PDF Pattern

Wow!  I didn't realize how many of us like pears, or pear pincushions!  Cool!



It would take forever to email everyone who asked for a copy of the pattern that I used to make my pear so forgive me if I take the easy way out and just provide you with the link to the PDF folder that I created.  

I also included very brief instructions as to how I constructed my pear.  I'm sure you won't even need them once you see how easy it is.  What I realize now is that I forgot to include the final step and that is to embroider the feather stitch on each of the seam lines using the thread or floss of your choice.  I used Valdani 12 wt black.

Click HERE for the link to the PDF file. 

Several of you also asked for a source for hand dyed cotton velvet.  The source I was going to use before I was gifted with Shirley's velvet samples is Blackberry Primitives.  Click HERE for the link to their website and go to "Hand Dyed Velvet" to see their awesome selection.

I'd love to see all your pears when they're done so please send me a picture if you think of it.

That's it!  Have fun and enjoy!


Happy stitching!

Oh, what a fun pincushion. Thanks for generously sharing your pattern with me. I'm hoping I can gather scraps of felted wool to make my Pear in the likeness of yours.
