It’s time for a change in my sewing room. It’s time… for a new pincushion! I figure that this ‘voodoo doll’ style isn’t just functional, it can double as a frustration reliever when things go wrong with my sewing! To create this little guy I traced a gingerbread cookie cutter onto my fabric. Instead of cutting around the lines or even just outside of them to create a seam allowance, I stitched the two pieces of fabric together (right sides together) on the traced line, left an opening for turning, then cut the remaining fabric away from the stitches. Easy! Eventually, I’m going to give this Sugar Skull a whirl on my machine as well, I figure that I need some sort of heftier material (like felt) before I do that.
What’s your favorite pincushion?
