I think everybody loves a pretty pin cushion, and I’m no exception to that rule!
Sometimes it’s nice to use an item that you haven’t made yourself – there are so many talented makers out there – and as I’ve been hunting for that perfect new addition to my workroom supplies I thought you might like to see some of the delicious designs I’ve discovered online …..
One: Teacup Pincushion by Coco Rose Textiles (www.cocorosetextiles.blogspot.com) Two: Cupcake Pin Cushion by CrystalCreates2001, Etsy (www.Etsy.com) Three: Personalised Sewing Machine Pin Cushion by RosieBull Designs, Not on the High Street (www.notonthehighstreet.com) Four: Jammy Dodger Biscuit Pin Cushion by feltsofancy, Etsy (www.Etsy.com) Little Hedgehog Pin Cushion by the imagination of ladysnail, Not on the Highstreet (www.notonthehighstreet.com)
Of course over the years I’ve made many of my own pin cushions, and I think the most popular design ever must be my version of a classic make – the Pin Cushion Mice……
They’re just so cute – and a perfect make to keep kids busy on a rainy afternoon in the summer holidays! If you haven’t downloaded your free Pin Cushion Mice pattern yet, you’ll find it over on my free patterns page along with lots of other goodies too.
If you do decide to download the Pin Cushion Mice, then you’ll be amongst the first to see my new logo and style – I’m so excited about it! I’ve just begun the process of updating and revising my patterns ready for my new website coming in September, and thought the Pin Cushion Mice was the perfect pattern to start with. I do hope you like Bustle & Sew’s new look – I’d love to hear what you think!
