Pincushions




Thank goodness we are not issued fines for not posting frequently. I know I couldn't afford the fines I would incur! These are some lousy scans of the pincushions I made the last couple of days. They were made by the English paper peicing method. I appliqued them on to a charm square after I sewed the peices together. I had never tried it before and it was fun! The pincushions are four and half inches. I filled them with walnut bird litter, which I read about on a blog somewhere. I found it at Pet Smart. It gives a nice weight to the pincushions. When I have my 100th post giveaway, one of these will be a part of it.

Those are just too cute! I worked on one last night, hope it turns out as nice as yours. I like the last one the best. I am going to look for a dresden plate one. I think it would be easy to do, no sharp points!

Very nice - I do love pin cushions and see so many out there in blogland. I have all these star blocks left over from a quilt I made my daughter as a wedding gift - maybe I can make some pincushions too! Thanks for the idea.
