Welcome to finish it up Friday!
I had very little sewing time this week, so all I managed to finish is these three pincushions. I guess that's better than nothing!
kindness pillow top. The other two were made from patchwork pieces that were floating around in my orphan block pile. At least they are usable items now! I think they make pretty cute pincushions.
I've also put my favorite tools for making pincushions in the photo. The first is invisible thread. It's a bugger to work with, because it's basically clear, but it makes the hand stitched opening almost invisible. It's amazing! A needle minder is essential because both needles and invisible thread are really, really hard to keep track of. My other favorite tool is a bamboo point turner. (Made by Merchant and Mills. I purchased mine at Modern Textiles.) It's such a handy tool for turning out the corner of tiny pieces like this. I would highly recommend it!
Since pincushions are the topic of the day, I thought it would be fun to do a giveaway, too! If you would like to win a PDF copy of my Plenty of Pincushion Patterns, Volume 1 and 2, please leave me a comment in this post. In your comment, I'd love to hear if you have sewing plans this weekend. If so, what do you plan to make? I'll pick a few winners tomorrow morning. If you win, perhaps you can make a few pincushions before the weekend is through. :)
edited to add: the giveaway is now closed, winners have been posted.
Now, it's your turn! Please link up your finishes for the week. Thank you, as always, for joining me for finish it up Friday!
