I recently participated in a Pincushion swap, and got a bit over-zealous in making one to swap. I simply kept trying out patterns and ideas and have amassed a growing collection. So here are some that I have made, and a few created by friends.
I received the owl in a swap some time ago, and the makers name is no longer attached, sorry. Felted wool pincushion and scrappy patchwork pincushion made from leftovers.
Large round pincushions made from this pattern. This cute little pocket was made by Tammi D. and what I came home with after the swap. Such a clever idea, and the perfect size next to my machine. I love the little calico kerchief sticking out of it.
The big flower pincushion was my swap entry. The one in the background is a pretty cool traveling pincushion. The pincushion is actually sewn to the inside of the plastic lid, so it sits flat when stitching, then the bowl attaches over the pins when done, and can be easily tossed in a bag with no worries of losing a pin or needle during travel. The precious wool pincushion in front was made by my friend Susan E.
And if that isn't enough cuteness for you, take a look at this precious hand stitched ornament that I got in a swap during the DMQG meeting this month.
Created by my friend Angie of Retromama's Ramblings. So blessed to be among several groups of very talents quilters and stitchers, so lucky to call them friends.
Now, a binding awaits!
