As some of you may remember, and still ask about, I signed up for a sewing class last fall. I can’t say I’ve been totally up to speed with it, but the nice thing about the class is that it’s designed to finish in a year’s time — which is great for stay-at-home mamas! That year will be up in August; which means I need to get crack’in! I’ve been meaning to post the projects I’ve completed thus far — so here goes:
Project 1: Pin Cushion.
The projects start off easy and get harder from project to project. I had alot of fun making this pin cushion. The instructions asked that I piece it together in patchwork style; however, I added a little of my own style by hand embroidering a vintage doily onto the front of the pin cushion and some onto the back. I love thrifting for vintage doilies and fabric just for this reason!
Now, just as a fun gesture, I’d like to mail this pin cushion out to someone as a little gift from Susie Mey. : ) Leave a comment here on this post, or shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know! I would keep it, but I have two handmade ones that could never be replaced because they are my absolute favorite!
