Back in June, my friend Diann sent me the cutest little pincushion. It brings me so much joy every time I use it (which is practically daily) so I have been wanting to make some of my own to share with a few of my quilty friends.
First up was a little string pincushion made from Amanda Jean's Good Neighbors fabrics. Both Diann and I love Crazy Mom Quilts and scraps so I thought this was a perfect choice for a little return pincushion love. <3
Hidden on the back is a fun little message.
It was so sweet that she shared a photo of its home in her sewing room - right next to her machine!
I also made one for my Kaffe Fassett loving friend. I couldn't get too fancy with this one as his prints are all so large. But I did find a pretty floral I liked with some pretty green shot cotton.
Yep, she is a local friend who I talk to almost daily and is always there for me.
The next one I made was for my friend Barb. She is also a longarm quilter so thread is a big part of our world. When I saw the Fresh Spool patterns from Fresh Lemons I knew I wanted to use it for her pincushion.
She was probably one of the first friends I made on-line and has been so helpful and supportive over the years.
I couldn't tell you where I found these friendship sayings but they are perfect for the backs of these pincushions. I knew if I held onto them long enough I would find the perfect use for them!
I also made a few of these beauties for some more local friends. I fussy cut a design out of some fabric and needle turned appliqued them to some pretty blue fabric. I added a little bling from the button jar to finish it off.
I still have a few more pincushions I want to make but I had to put this project aside for a bit to finish off some holiday gifts. Maybe after the first of the year, I will have some more to share.
And I cannot go away without sharing this cute little pincushion brought to me last week by a friend. I had given her the button fabric from my stash and it came back as a mouse.
So Darn Adorable!
