Carry-all Pincushion // Handmade Style

Carry-all Pincushion from Handmade Style by Anna Graham

I taught a workshop in Vermont for Nido a few months ago. I’d never been to Vermont and it’s so beautiful. Really similar to around home here in WI, but Burlington was such a fun town. It had a great downtown area filled with lots of little shops and handmade goodies (I scored a beautiful walnut cutting board across the street from Nido at Vermont Farm Table).pincushion2

Phiona had me make a few samples of the projects we were making, this one being the Carry-all Pincushion from my book. I was so happy to make a few more samples from my book, it’s always fun mixing and matching fabrics and seeing how they all come together. Plus I can never get enough pockets – all the pockets!

I think this pincushion comes in a really handy for a swap or a little gift to tuck in for a friend who sews. It uses fairly small pieces so it’s a great one to use up your favorite fabrics.pincushion

When I was designing this project there were some questionable moments. It always takes a little more time than I like to get things looking how I want. In the end I really love how it finishes up. Hope you have fun making one too!

    This is so cute! I’ve had your book on my Amazon wishlist since it came out, but since nobody has bought it for me yet I finally ordered it after seeing this post hehe. It’s arriving today and I can’t wait! I’ve been in a sewing rut lately and this looks like the perfect pattern for getting out of it with 🙂
