It’s August 1st! That implies my a single-a-day pincushion challenge is more than. I’m pleased to say that I have achieved my aim…I produced at least a single pincushion per day for the complete month of July! It was an extremely exciting challenge that was a wonderful workout in creativity (and perseverance). I may possibly re-check out this thought once more, but for now, I need a bit of a break from pincushion making. Can you picture??? 🙂
Let’s look at the final couple of:
I made this one with the leftovers from day 9. I love this version even greater than the first one particular! It really is scrap project # 176.
This pincushion was inspired by the cross reduce quilt along that Debbie was hosting on Instagram. I really like the colors and the simple design. It is scrap project # 177.
And for the final day of the challenge….day 31….
….an itty bitty sewing machine! This one particular took some time, figuring and stitch ripping, but it was all worth it! (I quilted the spool 3 different instances. Gah!) This a single is going in my permanent collection! It really is scrap project # 178!
All together now…the 36 pincushions (!!!) that I made in July. It was a LOT of enjoyable! Ridiculous, but fun!
Thanks once more to all of you who cheered me on and encouraged me along the way. It indicates so considerably! THANK YOU!!!
Nowadays, I am pleased to announce that I am releasing a new pattern: Plenty of Pincushions, Volume 1. It’s a single pattern that includes guidelines for the five pincushions shown: Flying Geese, Friendship, Diamond, Pineapple and Sailboats. Two of the designs (flying geese and pineapple) are paper pieced. Those two are written with the assumption that you already have basic paper piecing expertise. If you need to have to brush up on your paper piecing expertise, there are several, many video tutorials out there on the internet. I know I need to have to re-learn paper piecing nearly every time I try it. 🙂
To answer a handful of frequently asked concerns:
Q: What do you fill your pincushions with?
A: Crushed walnut shells. They are obtainable at bigger pet stores and they are sold as lizard litter. You can also use play sand, crushed glass or emery in location of the walnut shells. If none of those are accessible, polyester fiberfill also functions.
Q: What are you going to do with all your pincushions?
A: A handful of of them will go in my permanent collection. The other people, I have plans to give them away!
Well, there you have it. 🙂 Satisfied Monday to you!
