I decided to stitch this pincushion doll after the great success of my “A Christmas Doll Pincushion and Thimble Purse”, designed two years ago.
I hope you enjoy this new model as well.
This Pincushion Doll is dedicated to my dearest sister Alfonsina, amazing wife, mother, teacher, magistrate and………. last but not least……. my wonderful friend!
Porcelain doll was obtained by an antiques dealer. You can look for the doll from antiques shops, eBay, or choose a similar doll from BrierRose (e.g. Elizabeth doll).
