Milliner's Pins

For quite some time now I have wanted to collect hat pins, I find them quite beautiful, whether they be elborate or plain they were a dazzling ornament for the hats of an era long past.

I love the idea that once such a practical item can now be enjoyed sheerly for its beauty alone.
My mother recently moved house, and while packing and sorting through everything she came across an old hat pin that my grandmother used, it is very plain, silver in colour with a beautiful 'acorn' shape on the end, I absolutely love it. As it is the first in my collection I have it sitting in my pin cushion and it reminds me of both my Mum and Nan when I am sewing.

My new design has been inspired by this lovely pin. A collection of three different hat style pin cushions, made from fabric and felt, adorned with Rose's, Daisy's and Viola's.
I hope you like them!!



  1. I LOVE the hat pin cushions. When will the pattern be available. How cute.
