So lately I"ve been making pincushions for a guild program on March 18. These things are really addictive and you can make them with a very tiny bit of fabric. You can fussy cut designs, use orphan blocks and cut off HST and more. I've had so much fun I think I'll turn it into an industry.
I was at a local quilt shop last week and I purchased this seahorse and starfish for another project. But when I started making pincushions, I decided to use them, along with the crab that I purchased in Maryland a few years back, to make pincushions. The starfish is 5" square for a reference. These three are numbers 9, 10, and 11 of the ones I have made. I need to take photos of the rest because I'm donating 8 them to the guild for door prizes. These cut outs are done with an accuquilt die I believe and a local shop has them available with fusible interfacing already attached. All you have to do is iron them onto a piece of background fabric and go from there. I'll delve more into how to make these on another blog.
I was so enamored with making pincushions in the last month, my room has exploded and I still have plenty of projects not being made. I even put them on my Etsy shop! https://www.etsy.com/your/shops/TeaLeafQuilts/tools/listings
Maybe I'll sell a few. My intention is to make them as they are sold. Hah, we will see how that goes. Later.
