Prettified Pincushion-Zakka Along



      I love this pincushion. It was pretty easy and very quick. If  I did a project all at one time, I could tell you how long. That never happens around here.  I learned how to do a covered button. It's always excited to learn something new in a project. That is one of the things I love about this book. There are little twists to a project that are new to me.


The paper piecing was not that hard on this at all. The part that was a tad difficult was the flat corners. You just gotta push the fabric out of the way and try not to get the pucker.


 
The sew along is over now. I didn't do a lot of the projects. So, I will continue on with the sewing. There's some cute pepper coasters, apron, envelopes, and cute little placemats. Okay, so everything in the book is super cute! That's why I had to buy it! Best purchase this year. You should get one! The author Ayumi @Pink Penguineven stopped by and wrote some comments here. That was really awesome!
 

Linking up with Debbie @ A Quilter's Table. Thanks so much for the sew along. I was lucky to win a prize last week for linking up my Embroidery Pouch. I can't wait for it to arrive in the mail. I will post pics as soon as they arrive. This was my first giveaway win!!! I did a happy dance too! I'm a nut.

  2. Isn't this just the most beautiful pincushion design? Your version is lovely. I don't think I've seen one yet that didn't turn out lovely.
