Whimsy Oval Pin Cushion
This Blue Oval Pin Cushion Whimsy was made using Clear Basket and Pony Beads. The crafter beaded a pictorial design on blue velvet fabric. The whimsy has a threaded loop on the top for hanging. The blue fabric is in good condition on the front and a light discoloration on the back.
The Whimsey measures about 2.5″ at the widest section and 4.5″ tall not including the 2″ loop on the top.
This is a classic example of Beaded Whimsy tourist souvenirs. Native American crafters in the border regions between Canada and the United States at the turn of the 20th century created many of these whimsies for the tourist trade.
