Wrist Pin Cushion

Wrist Pin Cushion

I have been busy making lists of al kinds of crafts for my new sewing machine. I was all ready to make an oven mit when I found out I needed a walking foot to quilt the mit…. I thought I had it all but no. I wish I would have paid more attention to the foots I had so that I could have picked it up on my day off today but I will just go to the sewing shop tomorrow and pick one up. I have a major to do list but not really a to do list more of what I want to accomplish list.

Stuff to make:
  •  Table Runner
  • Placemats
  • Camera Straps
  • Embroidered Napkins
  • Quilts
    • Taggie Quilt
    • Rag Quilt
    • Quilted Duvet Cover

I bought some Valentine’s Fabric and plan on making some placemats and maybe a table runner. The table runner isn’t a right away thing since I don’t have a huge table but a set of four placemats will happen. I am so excited about the fabric I found at hobby lobby, I think they should be super cute!

So after I get the walking foot purchase I will officially get to “quilt” something and it will only escalate from there! :] And this new machine is seriously great. I embroidered a towel for my kitchen and plan on making some napkins and what not for my kitchen. I love the embroidery aspects of my machine. So many fun ideas running through my head!

Anyways I will finally move onto the post that I made for Christmas for a friend of mine, a wrist pincushion. I used some scraps of fabric I had and cut a two inch wide circle out of two different fabrics. Sew the circles rights sides together but leave about ½ to 1 inch open so that you can turn it right side out and stuff it. After it is stuffed stitch it closed and use some embroidery thread or just some colorful plain thread and start in the middle and sew “petals” Once I sewed the petals on I took a piece of elastic from a lace headband and sewed it to the cushion. Once the sewing was done I attached a cute button to the middle with a hot glue gun.

Anyways, here is the tutorial in pictures:
