Little project: pin cushions

Picture of the two pin cushions I've made

 I saw this wonderful tutorial on the internet for a super easy pin cushion and I could not resist.  I’ve used a little scrap of vintage fabric that I found at my mom’s house which is nice and colorful.

I wish I had found nicer buttons, but even so the pin cushions look nice (probably not so if you look too closely!).

I also want to tell you about my cheap but chic woven labels that I’ve ordered for my little projects (these are not for the hats). I almost forgot to sew them in! They are actually “school labels” and cost below 8 euros (less than 12 USD) for 72 labels (includding shipping). I’ve always liked ladybugs and that being one of the drawings available I thought it would be fun. Check out the labels on the blog of my cousin, just perfect for her knitting projects.

  1. Fantastic retro fabric! I just love how your pincushions came out. They are night and day better than my old tomato.
