Denise 2017 Pincushion Doll

blue pincushion doll denise by giulia punti antichi embroidered

This model is dedicated to my dearest friend Denise DeMore, who lives in Duxbury, MA. We share a huge passion for needleart, antique samplers and good company. 

This pincushion doll has been stitched with designs inspired by Antique Dutch samplers and with overdyed threads. 

Pins for the doll, the pins for pinkeep and chatelaine are made by Roberta Dazzini and are available for purchase at Giulia Punti Antichi.

The porcelain doll is available from BrierRose under the name of Denise.

In the chart you’ll find instructions for stitching and finishing the pinkeep as well as DMC thread conversions.
