Thanks so much for all of the sweet comments about my Zipped Up quilt. I'm sorry that I didn't give any details about my method. If I do share I would like to write up a proper little tutorial. Or at least a half-assed one. So I hope you don't mind being a little patient and wait until I have a chance.
In the meantime I made this little pin cushion.
I just made this up but I know that I have seen many pin cushions very similar to this in many different places. The only ones that I can think of right now are these little babies by Maritza of Soto Softies. Not exactly the same but they clearly influenced this design.
In other news, I have almost one hundred percent decided that I am going to apply for Felt Club XL this November. It makes me a little nervous! I've never participated in a craft fair before. I really don't even know if I could get accepted and if I do there will be a lot of crafting pressure. But I think that could be good for me. It's always nice to have a purpose to my sewing. So wish me luck and I will keep you posted!


  1. That pincushion is adorable, I love it. Good luck with the craft fair. I have been thinking about doing one too and it is scary, so much pressure to make a lot of items. I think you will do great.

  2. Cute. I think Heather Bailey created the original...

  3. Good luck with the craft fair. I love all your stuff and I think it would be a great addition!

  4. What is the name of that blue fabric. I bought some at Purl but it didn't have the name or company name on the part that I bought. I'm sure you'll do fine at the craft fair. I did pretty good at mine and I only had baby items.
