Mouse Pincushion x2

I have a little group that come to sew at the shop every fortnight, and they have decided that they would each work on a project together.  The Mouse Pincushion from the Birdhouse was the first project, and I decided to make one too, well 2 actually - one for me, and a shop display.

A little bit of applique:

 
Some paper piecing Hexagons:
 
 
And some stitchery.  This project has a bit of everything in it.


This one is my 'scrappy' version.  This side has a little pocket to put some treasures in and an applique section:
 

 
The other side, which holds a small set of embroidery scissors and a needle-case:
 
And of course, I have added my label!
 
Here is the shop's 'Tilda' version.  The needle-case and scissor section:
 
 
And the pocket and applique side:
 
 
They all turned out great, and the ladies are very happy with their creations.  Now, onto their next project......
