The teeny weeny cushion with the bunny came as a small "thank you" gift from the lady I bought the fabric from. She even put some pins in the cushion. How sweet is that! The pink felt one is the first pincushion I made when I started my sewing adventure, so it's been with me from the very beginning. I really like its softness and weightlessness. The same goes for the purple cushion, my old friend.
I told you I was going to make a pincushion or two. Well, I ended up making three. I did not really feel like working on any of the larger projects but rather I felt like fiddling around with tiny things like pincushions. Of course I had to make a "ticker tape" pincushion to match the sewing machine cover and the tins. I think finally I got over my "ticker tape bug" and I should look for new ways of using my scraps now.
I love my new additions to the fabric stash. I know I was not supposed to buy any fabric but I did some online shopping while I had the cast on and felt sew deprived so I think it was a perfect excuse. I will show you the rest of my shopping a bit later. So delicious!
Two more additions to my pincushion collection - a lovely hat and a little house with an enormous key. They were fun to make though the house was a bit too tricky. I almost gave up on it but glad I didn't. It's such a happy thing to look at.
So now I have six pincushions. Is it a lot for one tiny sewing room or not really? I still feel like making a few more, something with a quilting block or maybe a piece of embroidery or lace and flowery print. But first I have to get back to the projects on my TO-DO list... some small bags, kiss lock coin purse tutorial, drawstring bags, kids aprons, envelopes, lavender bags... and finish at least one of them before the end of the week. Happy sewing everybody! Larisa xo
