* cherry pin cushion

Posted on May 31st, 2006 by maitreya. Filed under Sewing/Fabric Crafts.

One thing I love about the web-craft-universe is that when you are in need of a project, there is always a meme for a crutch. Tonight I felt like crafting something small and immediate gratification. But what? Ah, last day for the pincushion challenge is it? I used red felt and the same cherry fabric as for my ironing board cover, so I’m all matchy matchy now. My favorite part is how the little button tufting the center just happened to fall in the spray of leaves so it looks like a cherry too. It would be perfect if only I had thought to put white thread in my bobbin, which I didn’t think to do until I was sewing on a white button for the back. Hmm, maybe I’ll have to make another one to give to my friend who just got a sewing machine….

    I don’t do enough of those ‘instant gratification’ projects myself. Good for you for NOT fussing with the bobbin thread, that might have spoiled your fun :-)

    I haven’t been up to anything these days. So it goes. I can’t be bothered with anything these days.

    I just don’t have much to say these days, but so it goes. Today was a total loss. I guess it doesn’t bother me.
