Shaggy Silk Pinsies

I'm playing around with the idea of using silk scraps with pearls to make colorful pinsies. You can see that the blue silk strip at the top is a selvage, so not as much fraying there. There's one pearl between each silk strip. Maybe 2 or 3 pearls would be better. Also, maybe the strips could be trimmed shorter.

These might look better on a design wall or bulletin board. They take up a lot of space on a pincushion. Of course a larger pincushion is another option. :) Any suggestions?

Did you notice the Olympic venue for gymnastics looks like a pincushion with pinsies? Especially when the towers are lit up at night!
