Patchwork Pincushion

This is what I made recently. With my school and assignments I got so busy, that I hardly find time to enter my sewing room. Yesterday when I was passing by my room, I suddenly felt the urge to whip up something fast and easy. While picking up some fabric pieces from the floor, I noticed a few pins lying on the carpet. For a second I cursed myself for not being watchful, especially with a kid around. I immediately knew I desperately needed a bigger pin cushion, as the one I already have ( store bought) is too small for all my pins.

As I mentioned earlier, for smaller projects like this I generally like to use up my scraps. I went through my scrap box and found these two fabrics and in about an hour’s time the pin cushion is all done.

I machine embroidered around the patchwork, just to make it a little more presentable. May be next time when I get some time off my assignments I will make something more dramatic. :)

P.S: My next project is going to be a tutorial. Well I still haven’t decided what it is going to be, but I will try my best to keep it simple, fun and interesting. So do drop-in again. :)
