I was dawdling the other day after working on some projects for too long. Just needed a little cleaning time and I finally sat down to make the Skinny Pincushion from the Green Bee blog. I pulled out a few cute tiny liberty scraps leftover from the Liberty Scrap Challenge project before Christmas and it really only took a half hour and I had a new pincushion!
This is such a cute useful pincushion. Make some for your friends, or use this to help teach your kids to sew! It’s small, but you can learn a lot of things just by making this project. I’m going to have to sit down with my girls and make some more.
I also officially moved in my patented Crazy Mom Quilts thread catcher that she made me and put it to use! Thanks Amanda Jean. Gosh, I’m so lucky. I love this little thread catcher. If you don’t have one, make one now! You’ll love not seeing that trail of threads around your house anymore. Update: Amanda Jean just released her pattern for her thread catchers, buy one here! [
Amanda Jean doesn’t have a tutorial for these, but a similar type bucket pattern would be the Nesting Fabric Bowls by Nova of A Cuppa and a Catchup.]
And thanks Melinda for the Lizard Litter! I filled the pincushion mostly with the Lizard Litter (it’s just crushed walnut shells which I guess help keep your pins sharp) and just a small amount of poly fill before stitching it up.
I love just a little bit of change like that. Spring is on it’s way here! Oh and visit Organic Stitch Co. if you want to get your hands on some Liberty scraps!!!
