Shopping for a baby shower gift took me back to stores I haven't visited in a decade. The Disney store was full of characters I had never seen but, then I spied a favorite character -Merrywether. I think she is a fairy Godmother from Sleeping Beauty. All I remember is she's kind, chubby, benevolent, wears a funny hat and is a little ditzy...just how I will be when I am old :)
I also noticed the bodies of these figure were stuffed so...instant pincushions!!!
And the pointy hats make a great spot to store a thimble.
The other two fairies, Fauna and Flora will be Christmas presents for sewing pals but,
I love my Merryweather pincushion. It's practical, useful AND puts a smile on my face.
You never know where you may find a instant perfect pincushion.
