Pins in the garden

I blogged recently about my plan to sew more. This month my plan has not gone quite to, er, plan, as rather than working from recent Sew Hip issues, I ended up sewing a project back from issue 11, which is rather a good one. (The woven quilt was in that issue too.)

Without further ado, I present my August small sewing project - a garden pincushion

I pretty much followed the Sew Hip instructions, but I did add a few felt flowers. The original just had leaves:

I also adorned my version with lovely handmade glass and acrylic flower pins, as shown below. If you like them, you can find them on etsy.

I already own several pin cushions, but perhaps you can't have too many?

  1. No such thing as too many pincushions, and that one is really nice.

  2. How sweet! Your flower pins add just the right touch. Personally, I think you can't have too many pin cushions. Incredibly useful and small so they are a perfect thing to collect!
