Hi Everyone and Welcome to My Blog,
With the Holidays fast approaching I’m needing to make a few gifts for my friends and family. While on my vacation to MSQC back in September I attended a demo by Vanessa with Lella Boutique. She was making some cute pincushions. As a bonus, she was giving away these mini charm packs of her fabric line and the pattern for free. Free is one of my favorite words. She ran out of the patterns before I received mine so when I returned to my hotel I contacted her through her website and she graciously emailed me a copy.
Each pack is enough to make three pincushions, so I’ll have two to give away. I collected all the supplies and got to play.
Vanessa recommended ground walnut shells for the filling so I hopped on the internet and found some from Amazon. If I recall correctly it was about $10. There is enough in the bag to fill all three of the pincushions.
After separating the pack into the color choices for each pincushion I followed the cutting instructions from the pattern. I hadn’t worked yet with such small patches and was a little worried that if my sewing might be off how it would affect the results. You can see below some of the small pieces I cut and was putting together.
But once it was all said and done, I don’t think I did a bad job. I hope someone will be happy with the gift.
Well that’s all I have for now.
