Well, I do believe I am completely smitten with pincushions! They are extemely satisfing to make, aesthetically pleasing, and functional to boot! What more could a girl ask for? I dig 'em! I made this one up today. The neat thing with this design is that it has a mini " baby" pincushion riding piggy-back. I think the smaller pincushion would be great to stick my really thin, small needles into, and use the larger pincushion for regular needles, embroidery needles, and pins of course! I posted this one in my etsy shop, and plan on making more of these as well as the cute ones with the heads.
This is the underside of the pincushion. I wanted to put some type of "BooDilly" lable on it. I have been fooling around with home made ones this last week, and really like how simple this one was to make. I simply printed up my lable info in printshop using a lable template and then flipped it so the words were reversed. Then I printed out a sheet of these backward lables onto t-shirt transfer paper. Next step was to cut one out and iron it onto a strip of satin ribbon that was a little more then twice the lenght of the lable. Let it cool, peel off the paper backing, fold the ribbon in half, and stitch the lable into place!
