I still have a few more sewing projects to share. This is sewing project #4 from the summer… a pincushion. This was a fun little project that my sewing teacher came up with. It was quick and simple to make, and has gotten a lot of use. The elastic band around the wrist makes it perfect for holding your pins where they are easily accessible while you are sewing. It’s really clever.
The two fabrics were both ones that my friend (and sewing teacher) had- one a vintage fabric, and the other with a cactus print I really liked. I think cactuses and pincushions go well together, and it makes me smile when I look at this little cactus pincushion. I find it deeply satisfying to make things, even little things. Up next: another project I made with more of that cactus fabric… Can you even handle the suspense?! 🙂
