Curiosities Carry-All Pincushion
Wednesday, December 2, 2015
Happy Wednesday! I have a number of finished projects to share before the year ends, starting with this super cute pincushion! Pincushions are one of my favorite things to make, and this one was lots of fun. This is the Carry-All Pincushion from Anna's book, Handmade Style. I knew immediately that I'd want to make this pincushion, and it did not disappoint! I'm already scheming a second.
I chose prints from the warm colorway of Curiosities for my cushion. The only thing I did differently from the instructions was to use a bit of ruler twill tape instead of a sewn fabric strip for the scissor strap! This particular twill is from Little Red Cottage.
Look at all the cute pockets on this pincushion! It's unlike any pincushion I've made before! It's a great addition to my collection.
The other side has these two pleated pockets. Perfect for packs of extra needles, my little tin of pins, or even some washi tape!
Each end has a pocket too! Standard round tape measure fit great in them.
I really enjoyed making this pincushion. I haven't been sewing too many small projects lately, I forgot how satisfying they can be. I am looking forward to sewing through more of the projects in Handmade Style. I've stitched up the Zip-Top Tote and the Double Zip Wallet (which I haven't posted yet!). I think I'd like to make either the tunic or the makeup travel case next! Or maybe her new Maker's Tote Pattern? It's a toss up!
