The pincushion craze!

It seems like everywhere lately I'm seeing the cutest little pincushions. This month I have four friends having birthdays so I thought it would be the perfect time to give one a try! There are some way cute patterns out there that I'm too cheap to buy, although these ones are still really tempting me. Here is the pincushion I came up with. At a really cute store here in Utah they had all of their's filled with rice. Usually I've seen them with filled with batting, but I thought the rice was nice because It stayed in place better!


Are you getting sick of this fabric yet? I still have lots of fabric left over from this bag I made forever ago. I'll be putting some of these pincushions in my etsy shop later today (after I get the kids of to school)! Watch for them if your interested. They would make great mothers day gifts, hint, hint! I'll even wrap it up for you really cute!

I hope everyone isn't getting sick of my sewing posts, my next one is a craft with paper for those of you who don't sew! Have a great day!

Nicole - I'm visiting your blog for the first time today - can't even remember how I found you - but we live pretty close to each other and I've visited some of the homes you've shared on your blog. Tiffany & Lorraine there in Kaysville. Have you ever been to Kay Wilde's home? She's a good friend of mine. Anyway, how fun to find you and I'll be stopping by on a regular basis!

Thanks for stopping by my blog. It is hit and miss with the local thrift stores here. I've been going for WEEKS to find dishes! I just lucked up on those. I do have a local junk store that has better prices. I go in once a week, they are going to start calling me by name! Ha! I made my own cloche last night and posted it as my today's blog. Another thrift find made into something! I am now following you so I can keep up. Have a great night.
