Lets give a BIG thanks to Kristen King and Madame Samm for all their hard work. It was very much appreciated, believe me!!!
I made a few different projects. First, I got this pattern from Connecting Threads. I thought it was sooo cute. I not only got the pattern, but this time I actually broke down and got the fabric also. I had a gift certificate and figured, why not. The fabrics were great prints. And I got extra so can easily make another
The pattern was sooo easy to read and it was a lot of fun to make. My only difference was that I did not have Walnut shells for stuffing. I had to go with sand.
Is't it cute? This is going to be its home, for now. I have been using it and it really has come in handy already.
Pin Cushions are so much fun to make. I had to make some more. I seen a picture in a magazine, but someone stole the full article and instructions :( But I took a picture of the picture with my phone and decided to make my own pattern. It was easier than I though, course I am not sure if I got the measurements correct, but did it anyway. So I made my own pattern and this is what I ended up with:
They work perfectly on the wrist and have pins handy at all times. They make great Christmas presents. So I made enough for my nieces and a few cousins.
Then I drew cats and dogs......OH YEAH! I couldn't resist.
I just couldn't resist with a little fabric paint and some buttons and a bow.
Oh, now that you have seen mine....lets all go and check out the rest the the beautiful creations of Pin Cushions that also posted today:
