My first post in 2017 is a cute one; on New Year's Eve I discovered a Pincushion SewAlong on Instagram. This is hosted by @zeriano and Sew Illustrated. The patterns were free until January 1st, so I hurried to download them.
Each pincushion is 3" x 3" inches finished. I am mostly using scraps of Liberty prints.
I just had to make this as the first one. The orange batik cat is a tribute to my late cat. He passed away two years ago at the mature age of 16 1/2 years.
The second one us appliquéd using two Liberty prints, and I used both machine and hand stitching.
These tiny projects are so cute and rewarding, I am using up the smallest scraps I have. For the back of the pincushions I am using my smallest floral prints.
In this bowl there is room for several more, just stay tuned to my blog!
