Pin Cushion

Summer is trying to arrive too early for me.  After a couple of days in the 80s, today is a bit cooler in the 60s.  However, we are back to the 80s again tomorrow but the 60s by the end of the week.  The seasons no longer seem to have the weather patterns they are supposed to have.

Today, I have another first for me--a pin cushion project.  After watching a couple of tutorials on You Tube, I decided to give one a try.  No sewing is involved--all put together with glue.


To begin, I cut two circles from a piece of fabric.  A mound of batting was put in the center of one circle with the second circle on top and gluing the edge closed.  A strip of lace and an applique were glued across the center.  Various pieces of ruffled trim were glued around the edge.  Fabric flowers were added for some interest.  I added some handmade stickpins--they are not very good (I need more practice!).


Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by and for leaving your sweet comments.  I enjoy reading them.  Have a wonderful week ahead!

  6. This is such a beautiful project and a functional one too, which I love! All these laces layered together create such a shabby chic delight, I think I will need to do one of these for my craft room, now that I have seen yours! I made a paper one a couple of years ago, but it's starting to wear thin now with all of the holes. Thanks for the inspiration my friend!

    So glad to finally be able to stop in and say hello. I hope all is well with you, and you're enjoying the warmer weather. thinking of you and sending hugs :)
