Well, I cannot help myself, I really want to share what I am doing, so here is what I did with some of the leftover quilted fabric from my project! The fabric is the one I won in the giveaway from Ivy and Neat (click here for the original post).
This really sweet pincushion fits perfectly in my sewing machine so it is really handy to have as I am sewing. And I still have two more scraps to make some to giveaway... I cannot part with this one. Can someone really love a pincushion?
But the greatest thing about it, it also takes less than 5 minutes to make, that is if you have quilted scraps, but I am sure you will at one point or the other have some of those, won't you?
I didn't use any templates, it is a very simple project, just cut your scraps to the size you want pin right sides together and sew along, just leaving a small opening to turn inside out. Fill and close the opening by hand, and voilà new pincushion to add to the collection!
Anyway now that I feel a bit more relieved I can go back to this productive week of mine and make some more presents... yes two of my friends are pregnant and I get to make lovely and cute baby gifts, joy!
Linking to W.I.P Wednesday at Freshly Pieced today for my secret WIP... care to guess what I am making by the look of the pincushion?
