A morsel


Here it is!  

The first pincushion I've ever made!





Now I see why everyone seems to like making them so much.

From picking out the scraps, to sewing on the trim and the buttons, and even filling it up with walnut shells, making this pincushion was such a fun project.

Great for some quilting instant gratification!




I used some Sew Mama Sew scraps from my Dimestore quilt with some random grey fabric from my stash.

I have no idea why I have that grey fabric.  It looks like I bought enough to have a plan for it, but what that plan was I just don't know. 

I do love how it works in this pincushion!

The red fabric on the back is a Moda grunge.  A scrap from a recently completed border. 

When I saw how the grey in the grunge went with the front of the pincushion, I had to use it!   






This all came about because Morsel is the pattern of the month for the Another Year Of Schnibbles parade coming up soon on Sherri's blog and Sinta's too.

A very special thank you to Sherri, Sinta, and of course Carrie too for such a fun year filled with wonderful projects and friendships!

I have enjoyed following all of your schnibbles quilts this year. I love this pincushion. The fabrics and button embellishment are adorable.

Lovely project! Hopefully you will make more in 2013. I have one which has lived downstairs for a while as I've been finishing things by the tree. Most live upstairs in various parts of the craft room. You can never have too many places to put needles and pins.

Oh Michelle I love it! The grunge fabric is perfect...I am thinking I have a piece of that in my stash somewhere and forgotten how nice it is.I really must dig it out and put it at the top of my reds(for a little inspiration)
Well done on your first pin cushion...I am guessing it is the just the first of many to come!

How has this pincushion held up? Where did you find the walnut shells and would you use them again? I want to make a combination pincushion/thread catcher for my table but I'm not sure what to use in the pincushion. A few people have said sand??? Are the walnut shells light or kind of heavy?
