Madame Samm from SewWeQuilt.com got us in the mood to pin...
Kristen from Meadowbrook is cheering us on...
And today is my day to share my pincushion creations.
I had such fun looking for ideas and creating my own pincushions.
I found a vintage-like clamp at Christmas Goose and just HAD to have it! After a little searching,
I found this cute bird pattern at Cheswick Company that would work perfectly with the clamp.
(My bird didn't quite turn out like theirs, but close enough.) This was my first time sewing with
wool felt...loved it! It wasn't 100% wool, but it worked great for this cute bird.
Their pattern had the heart underneath the wing...I thought it was too cute to hide.
I previously mentioned my visit to Superior Threads and my luck in meeting Annie from
byAnnie.com...she has a pattern that included this rolled up wool felt/felted wool pincushion.
(I'm learning the difference between wool felt and felted wool thanks to Annie.)
A shopping trip with my three-year-old Monkey Boy found us this cute soap dish. It is heavy and
works great to hold my pincushion. I filled it (and my other pincushions) with walnut shells
that I purchased at Quilt Taffy.com. My little flower and covered button look so cute on my mini quilt!
A sundae anyone?
I just love those clamps and this circus elephant perches nicely on it.
The elephant pattern is by Heather Bailey, Effie & Ollie.
Just in case you didn't know, the Wicked Blog Hop is coming and this guy is ready!
Enough of me, me, me...how about a giveaway?
Thearica at Pigtales and Quilts has a fun store, so I did a little
shopping for my giveaway and came up with a package of goodies just for you.
But, wait! There's more!
