At Chooky's Chookshed party the girls made a tiny pincushion - you can check out some of them here....Chooky was kind enough to send me the link to the pattern...I just had to make one...it finishes at about 21/4". Perhaps an exercise in fiddliness.
I think it took longer to decide on the fabrics and cut them than to make it - although a VERY useful tip from Chooky was to cut the strips 3/4" wide instead of 1/2" - and the ones that should be 3/4" - at least 1". I filled it with walnut shells to give it some weight.
Next time though I think I will draw it onto a very fine vilene and leave it in - removing the paper was a tedious part of the exercise.
One quick project finished....I have a collection of 'almost finished' .... I need to get myself organised....
