Little ones made each with a single square of fleece and an extra scrap for decoration. The method I used for them is a little hard for me to describe in words. I think I’ll explain it with more detail in a later post, it’s easy I promise. The decorative flowers were made with just a strip of fleece and some thread and running stitches. It’s a easy little technique I learned from a book on fabric flowers that I found at the library years ago. I will probably explain that one later too. Wow, much to do for the future.
Anyway, these pincushions were so quick to put together. I could literally whip one up on the train ride to work, and whip up and attach the flower on the ride back. I actually finished the last couple of flowers while waiting to leave from work. I kind of stuck around the store for a while longer than intended last night due to a major storm. Nothing like sewing to keep you occupied when waiting. Especially sewing something as cute as these pin cushions.
I kind of thought they would make cute gifts, either for people I know who sew or for people who are interested in learning. Maybe coupled with the needle books from last week (see 5 a Week: Needle Books) and some other necessary supplies. For now, I still need to focus on the next batch of small projects as well as my craft list. You thought I forgot about that right? Nope, I just hadn’t quite had enough time to get started right away. I did get one project from it finished, the easiest. I’ll share that one plus some more things later this week. Look forward to it.
