Finally FINALLY…I finished my pattern of the “Happy Pincushion Organiser” … now I can take big big sigh of relief…have had it on my todo list for ages…but somehow I have managed to prolong this to the longest….ever!

And this needs to be celebrated..doesn’t it!!! Do I hear a YES…I hope so…😜

I will be giving a way one 8 pages PDF pattern with step by step instructions and lots of pictures here on my blog …and on Instagram I will be giving away two more patterns.

And as always..I LOVE hearing from you…you are the reason why I love to blog …so this time I’m very curious to know…


Easy Peasy… let me know in the comments and I will add you to the draw! And if you want to sign up for my newsletter…that is up to you….I wouldn’t dream of forcing you to sign up just for a giveaway…💗

Giveaway will be open until Sunday the 5 th Of August…somewhere until I go to bed! 😉

My Happy Pincushion Organiser is a most fun little Pincushion to make…I have made nine already..and I’m sure I will make lots more.

It started with these 4 ones… one for us all in our sewing group “Kreativa Tanter” …roughly translated to Creative Ladies… can’t find a word for our Swedish word “Tant”…an “older” lady, love having a cup of tea or coffee and fika and chatting with friends and at the same time doing something crafty! Anyone know if there is a word for that?

The pincushions made…one for Tant Gul 💛 (Yellow=Lilian),Tant Blå 💙 (Blue=Carola), Tant Rosa 💗 (Pink=Åsa) and Tant Grön 💚 (Green=Me)… how fun it was to give these away… ❤️

Then I made one for my lovely therapist Kicki…she was the sunshine on my winter days…so she needed one too🧡

Orange one for her… see how very scrap friendly this Pincushion is!

This spring I made two more…needed a lot of testing to do and also photos to take…

This one have now gotten a home with Louise…💗

And this one lives at the home of Shirley in England…💗

Here I took a pause in my pattern writing for some reason…phew…so I needed to dust my memory off so I made one more and almost finished the pattern..

Made with scraps that was on my cutting table from my lastest sewing…the secret one!

Here I changed a bit to the pattern…added that…and I also got a new idea…so I had to make another…😜 my latest one…and this one is now officially my favourite!

I added a holder for my sewing thread! Yay…now I can have it even more organised!I found the perfect button…this one have come all the way from Australia as a gift…and now it came to perfect use!

It’s the perfect size to sit on my sewing machine too… 💖

Hope you will love making one for you and lots for your friends…

Pattern can be bought at my Craftsy storeI appreciate every little buy …means more than you know!

And good luck in the draw! 💖💗💖

    Hej Stina I have only just found your blog and I love it! I am definitely a scrap lover. I am trying to think of a translation for your “tant” word and I am tempted to say Auntie – even though it’s not strictly true I think Crafty (or creative) Aunties goes well, and aunties really like coffee and chat (speaking personally that is haha!)
