Pile o' Pincushions

>> Monday, July 30, 2007

Our big plans for a baseball game on Saturday night - it was Crash Davis Bobblehead Night! - had to be scrapped because of rain, so I spent more time sewing this weekend than I expected. I made up 150 blocks for my new quilt AND whipped up a pile o' pincushions using nothing but scraps.

I took apart Alan's Hagrid wig and used the wool to stuff these. The red polka dot fabric is a scrap from the lining of Jo's Pelt of Elmo Poncho - one of my favorite projects ever.

I also made Jo a ladybug pincushion so she can have her own pincushion for her quilting, but I'm not happy with how it turned out. I sewed the buttons on before I put it together and stuffed it and the curve of the pincushion put the buttons in weird places.
