Scraps…

How about you…can you throw them away? I can NOT..not even the tiniest of scraps…so I’m saving them…for special projects…lol…

When I sewed on Annika’s Broken Star blocks there were a lot of corner cut offs. I sewed them together into half square triangles while sewing the block…that makes the work a little bit more fun…and it’s better to have them sewed together to a block rather than lying around somewhere…❤️


This time the scraps became the sweetest little pincushion… and it was the perfect gift to my lovely friend Louise…pink and black… colours she likes.


I actually made another one for me…in a different pattern…which reminds me to finish it! Wonder where I put that one?


Kind of cute isn’t it? ❤️


So don’t throw your scraps away!! ❤️️

I got the loveliest pincushion from my swap partner
Karen Sofie in Denmark…
She had read me very well trying to find out what I liked …
A soft palette, pretty fabrics ( look at that strawberry) and the hexagons…
 
Well I have never made a hexagon quilt…YET… But I so love them…
and I had them on my inspiration board I sent for her to be inspired by.
 
The quilting on it is fantastic…and a fun one!
And it's two sided… So so clever…
Love the modern Christmas tree on the other side!
I am so so happy for my pincushion…
Karen's handiwork is brilliant!
 
Have used it every time I sew!
Thankyou Karen!

I have always wanted to make the Carry All pincushion
it is a pattern by Anna Graham from the blog Noodlehead..
And can be found in her book Handmade Style…which is a great book…
lots to make in that one! More Future projects… 😉
So when a secret pincushion swap was decided in Scandibee for Christmas
I decided to make it for my partner…
I absolutely LOVE how it turned out…
A clever one with pockets to fill with what you need!
I even was very tempted to keep it myself and sew her another…
but decide to send it … because it was made with her in mind.
Our Admin of the group…Ruth was my partner…
Can make another one…can’t I? 😉
