Sometime today, Karen sent along the link to the Stickin’ it to the Pincushion on WhipUp.net. I already had pincushions on the mind, because I had seen and purchased some really cute ones at merchandise night when I was in Louisville. But these were so easy and so cute, I just had to make one. Then one turned into three. This first smaller one is made from a yummy sea turtle batik from my friend Karen and a piece of fulled wool from a swap last year. I also used black mother of pearl buttons and variegated floss for the first one.
Here are all three that I made during the afternoon. Most of the fabric came from my birthday present squishy from Karen. I used different buttons and different threads for each, including gold metallic for the one that is metallic batik and satin.
