Another Pin Cushion

I learned a new method for making the base of these pin cushions.

I tried it out in making the one above. I made it pretty early this morning, too early for a brighter photograph, but you get the idea.

The tutorial is on the Riley Blake Designs website. They have a whole page of pin cushion tutorials. I used this tutorial to make the one shown above.

Spooky helped.

She wasn't much help. She supervised me hand sewing the button on. I had to physically remove her from my sewing table to sew the back onto the pin cushion. Good thing she is so cute!

Love this, Lynn! I'm going to try out that tutorial. Also going to check out those bag patterns from your last post - I could really use some bags like that. What a great photo of Spooky - LOL!

You can bet on double the time if a cat shows up to help.
