Pin cushion

Craft Snippet N°11


Last week I stitched a little butterfly, I was just messing about with colour, and when I started it I wasn't really going to do anything with then, but as I stitched it I found Kaye who came up with idea of turning small cross stitch into pin cushions, thought oh yes what a great idea, so it turned from this to.....


It looks really cheery on my table in the sewing room. 


This is another first for me, it's my first attempt at patchwork. 


This is just a little gift-tag I made from the same idea of the padded cards. 

Bye for now

It is as cute as a button. 1st attempt at patchwork may not be a good idea. You could get hooked and then starts another long list of UFO's ; ) . Pin cushion addicts anon here we come.......

how sweet! Well done for trying out patchwork, your points match so well! Love the padded tag - has it just got wadding underneath the house?

Wendy said...

yes, I can see it's a present and not a house, sorry, I was multitasking!

Love your cross stitch butterfly. Cross stitches make nice pin cushions. Your patchwork looks great. Maybe we should make a cushion together based on the quilt in country cottage quilting.
