Square Pincushions

IMG_0689

Finally got round to making a square pincushion for a change!  Using red and pink spotty fabric, I made a patchwork effect and added ric-rac for a nice finish.  The red heart button finishes it off.

Sewing Tidy

IMG_0676 IMG_0677

Pretty sewing tidy in Cath Kidston original bird fabric.  It has pink bias binding on the edges and can be hung up on the loop provided or folded away as in the pictures. Lovely and useful for the crafter yet nice to look at too!

Hexagonal Pincushion

IMG_0653Here are a few of my hexagonal pincushions.

This is a spotty pink one with a cherry fabric in the middle, which I think helps it stand out more.

This is a retro 1950s one.

IMG_0642I love this fabric so much that i’ve made a 1950’s A-line skirt out of it too!

Notice Boards

IMG_0678I’ve just made this vintage floral memoboard.  The fabric is Cath Kidston inspired and would look pretty hanging on a wall in any room.  Its very practical too and useful for displaying cards, pictures and anything that takes your fancy!

 

 

IMG_0601I made this red star noticeboard for my son’s room.  No pink or floral fabrics here!  Its used to display all his train postcards and any postcard that grandparents and aunties send him from holiday.

 

IMG_0533This is the cat lovers board!  I made this for my friend, who like me is cat mad.  It is made from a cat fabric background in blue and white and if you look closely, it also also has a ribbon across it with cat pegs to hold pictures and photos etc.  Needless to say she loved it!
