Little Square Pincushion

June 29, 2007 at 6:53 am 5 comments

What’s a crafter to do when she’s tired of lugging her pin holder from sewing table to cutting table to ironing board and back?

Make a pin cushion of course! While there are some amazing and inspirational pin cushions out there…I decided to go simple with Heather Bailey’s little one in the current edition of Quilts n More.

I must admit, it was a bit fiddly to get the ribbon to go through the cushion. My poor doll maker’s needle is significantly…uhh…not straight anymore. But I think it was worth a little tugging and grunting.

And look! It’s reversible!

    Hi, came over via various links (forgot how!!) and love your pincushions. Nice choice of ribbon – and fabric too. Haven’t read too much on your “bagsket” but that’s looks like a very, very cool and innovative design – I mean, most bags you can’t hold those large skeins of fiber, yarn…You are on to cooler things!
