This morning , I made a 4 in.x 4 in. patchwork pincushion. It is made from sixteen pieces of 1.5 in. x 1.5 in. square patches ( with 1/4 in seam allowance included) .
How many pincushions do I need ? One or two should be enoungh. I already have three, but it is such a great fun to make this cute little pincushion, quick and easy to sew. When I could not have enough time to sew a blouse or a dress, I tend to sew some simple stuff like this.
This morning, I spent some time on cutting out many different sizes of squares from my scraps, 1 .5 in. x 1 .5 in, 2 in. x 2 in. , 2 .5 in x 2. 5 in. , 3in. x 3 in. , 3.5 in. x 3.5 in. and 4in. x 4 in. I put them in different boxes and intend to use them for making coasters, pincushions, pillows, pouches , drawstring bags, placemats, baskets and etc. So many things I wanted to do but I have so little time !
Happy sewing to all of you !
