I shoulda waited until this book arrived before trying to make up my own pincushion pattern. Sure, in this photo it looks sorta good. Pictures make it easier to pretend that the way it turned out (flower instead of tomato-shaped) was how I'd planned for it to. Even if it is totally not the look I was going for -- at all.
Oh, and I coulda worked more carefully when sewing up one particular section. Going into it I knew that it would be tricky. I told myself to be careful not to accidentally catch the fabric from one section while sewing the next. But, I still did it.
If I’d heeded my own inner censor, I woulda spared myself a wonky flower-shaped pincushion with a big (though conveniently hidden) whoops! on the bottom. But I didn’t. And you know what, I’d do it all again. Who knows what I’ll end up with next time!
Does anyone know where I can find cute translucent pins like the ones on this pin cushion? I love 'em.
Thank you so much to Angie of parentdish.com for posting about my Pom Pom Pumpkin tutorial. You almost made me want to send you a pipe cleaner Santa for saying such incredibly nice things about me + liquid paper.
A SLIGHT DELAY
I meant to post pics of my new + in progress craft studio space, but by the time I remembered to take photos it was too dark to get a good shot. I’ll try again later this week.
