Pin Pal Gal & Sampler

The tomato pin cushion has come to be considered a symbol of needlework and sewing. This popular motif provided the inspiration for the Pin Pal Gal and Sampler designs. Patterns and easy finishing instructions for both designs are included with the chart. The doll is stitched on the front, and finished with a cotton print fabric for the back and base. The sampler may be finished flat, as shown, or mounted in a traditional frame.
