Making pincushions can be seriously addictive.
I had the urge to make a logcabin pincushion
this morning, and I ended up sewing up three.
I really enjoy having a fun motif in the center
of my log cabin. And including some pieces of
fabric with writing is just necessary :)
This one turned out to be a cutie!
Combining all sorts of different fabrics
is always fun. The poodle looks happy
being surrounded by cute feedsacks.
This is the other side of the pincushion.
I was so happy I found this perfect fabric
from my fabric stash. Its manufacturer is
American (I believe it was Alexander Henry)
but I found it in Japan a few years ago.
Don't you have some fabrics that you really
like but have never found a use for? This
was one of the fabrics like that, so I am
glad it's finally in use :)
This one is very much vintage-inspired too.
Even the red piping tape is vintage!
I found an unopened, new one at a thrift store
a while ago. Its original price printed on the
label was 19 cent, but I think I bought it
for $1 or so. I love thrifty vintage finds!
Back side. This is the fabric I've wanted to
use to make a pincushion so once again I am
really happy that it finally became a part
of a pincushion!
This last one is the silliest of the three,
because it says "Made in USA" and "Made in
France" in the black piece of fabric although
the fabric was made in Japan. Very silly!
And look at the back side! The word
that starts with "Stamp.." is back-warded!
I like the fun details of the pincushion.
All three picushions have been listed in
my shop. (The first one is gone - thank you!)
I'll be back with a mug rug I made for my
friend soon...! Thanks for stopping by!
Have a great rest of the weekend!
