I'm late to the game but I finally realized that the magnetic pincushions aren't necessarily superior to handmade pincushions. I thought it was great that I could just "throw" the pins onto the magnet and not worry about it. But this often led to pins on the floor and other undesirable landing spots. And it broke- which is definitely not something that would happen to something like this cute apple:
For this month's theme, "fine" at Le Challenge, I decided to make a pocket pincushion. The pattern comes from Heidi Staple's Sew Organized for the Busy Girl. Handmade pincushions are just as "fine," if not better than, the magnetic pincushion I have been so loyal to.
For this project, I dug into my Liberty Lifestyle scraps as well as a F8 of Mochi Linen Dot in Sand. I never know what to do with F8's but this was a perfect project for them!
Yesterday we had a major spring snowstorm in Colorado and all of my fun weekend plans were cancelled. It was a bummer but my husband and I took advantage of being forced to stay home and we did a major spring cleaning. Our house has never looked so good. I didn't realize how bad it had gotten until we made it look so good! A side benefit of our day was that I found these cute scissors that fit perfectly into this pocket pincushion and even match my fabrics!
Thanks for reading. I also finished a longstanding WIP last night and will share that next.
