Tweeny Weeny pin cushion

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....

Well done. Yes, they are fiddly. If I can just find my walnut shells I'll get mine finished off. I love your colours.

How cute! I did a little one inch nine patch last year... although I turned it into a keychain instead of a pincushion :) Sometimes I wonder why we do these things... but they are cute! xx
