Today I am excited to offer you this round civil war inspired pincushion. It all started with this unique black metal hurricane lamp candle base. I used several different civil war reproduction fabrics to complete this set. There is a small red and beige print, a faded red, a tan and another red with a small black and white motif

There are 3 appliqued hearts on the pincushion with strawberries attached to the center of each one. I used some chain stitches and feather stitches to finish them off

The heart box is 4 1/2 inches wide and is covered in the red fabric with the small black and white motif

I covered the small oval box with some faded black cotton and lined it with some more of the tan fabric. The bottom cushion is stamped with the word “forever”

The oval box contains some old red buttons, a small spool of coordinating red floss, a key and some old brass safety pins.  I added some old steel pins and brass safety pins to the heart pincushion. The bird can be displayed in many ways here I placed him on top of the pincushion

These are very nice display pieces – I purposely used drab colors in this set so that it can be displayed year round. The black hurricane candle lamp base was a rare find so this set is a one-of-a-kind offering
