Let's Make Pincushions!.....

Saturday, March 21, 2009

Martha Stewart's "Home Grown Tomato" Pincushions......Aren't these just darling!! I have so been busy organizing my "sewing/craft area" in one corner of our garage! It is finally begginng to take on all the needed characteristics of a wonderful work space!.....A great big "table", lots of "shelves" for fabric, ribbon & notions.... & an "ironing board" all set up & ready for action!....However, while sorting through all the scissors, threads & tape measures, I decided I must have a few new "pincushions"...& I have vowed it is time for some "charming" ones!!!.....So I did a bit of research, & have collected a few "ideas & tutorials", that you too might want to whip up! These are some of the "prettiest" examples I could find,... & ones that any "stray pin" would be proud to call home!....I invite you to take a peek!.....Happy Creating!.......Heidi XO

Anna Maria Horner's "Wild Flower" Pincushion......what wonderful fabrics she has,... & patterns too!....

Heather Bailey's "Patchwork" Pincushion.....another delightful idea from such a talented lady!....


A lovely little "pincushion" by Purlbee, so sweet & simple.......



And Martha Stewart's "Strawberry" Pincushion.....A basket of these would be perfect for Spring!....don't you think?......

Hello Heidi, Thank you for the lovely pincushions! What a nice idea for a quick litle project. Most inspiring. I made some cute hearts not that long ago that I thought would be great pincushions/sewing aids but these are nicer :)
Hope you are well and happy

What great pincushions I love them all! But what I really love as I scrolled down is you speaking up about Obama and his administration! I agree, the people in this country better wake up and see what's going on in Washington. Good for you to speak up on your blog you make this American proud!

Those Strawberries are so much fun to make! I think we should do a Pin Cushion swap...EEK how fun! I'm in!

Heidi, I loved seeing all the different pin cushions, especially loved the tomatoes and strawberries. Take a peek at my website one of these days. I make altered art shoes that can also be used as pin cushions so I am always intriqued by other pincushions.
