A little pincushion.
And not that I have sewn on this, but one of my very dear customer's Mary brought this in for me to use in the shop display - her toy Vulcan sewing machine from when she was a little girl (and it works). Mary's Mum was a dress maker and Mary used to sew too, when her Mum was sewing. Isn't it a wee cutie?
I hope you are having more joy with your sewing.
