Pincushion fun

13 08 2007

I have been making some cushion covers to match my quilt (and it’s all going horribly wrong at the moment so I have left them for the time being) but I noticed very quickly that I lacked an essential piece of sewing kit – a pincushion. I have seen tons on fabulous pincushions on the web and decided to knock up a quick one so used the tutorial I saw at both Turkey Feathers and Coyote Craft which came from here originally. This is the baby blue furry felt top:

And this is the baby blue and white cutesy gingham bottom:

My mum has requested one. They are fun and quick to make so I am only happy to oblige. My only problem – sewing in a circle with my machine is not as easy as it looks!!
