Bottle Cap Pincushion

Bottle cap pincushions are fun to make. This is made with black leather felt and embellished with a gold scissor charm, a gold and mother of pearl antique button, gold embroidery thread, and a pearl. A black and gold bead anchors the scissor and button. Sorry about the poor quality of the photo. The shine from the gold distorts the image. I am still developing my photography skills.

This is for my Fiber Art Traders swap. I do not have a name yet. The gold, pearl and beads remind me of the "Victorian age," but I could not think of a name. Friends, Ipo, Ku'ulei, Su, morningDove, are you out there? What do you think?
