As you might have already guessed from reading my blog, I love designing pincushions. I'm excited to share that my newest design will soon be available at a bookstore near you. Last spring, I was asked to design a special pincushion for American Patchwork & Quilting’s upcoming book, Bags, Pillows & Pincushions. To my surprise, my pincushion made the cover! It's the round pink houndstooth cushion with the blue bird and flowers.
The book will be released later this month but you can pre-order it at Amazon here. I love working with wool, so I couldn't resist using it for this project. It's hard to see it on the cover but the pincushion is wrapped in a pinked strip of wool that covers the seam—a quick and easy solution for hiding any sewing imperfections.
I also made the pincushion in a green, pink, and brown colorway for the book team. A pincushion dressed in either color palette would make a cheerful springtime gift for a fellow sewing friend. So if you're looking for some creative projects to start the new year off with, check out my pincushion and all the other 34 fun projects in this brand new book from the editors at American Patchwork & Quilting magazine. I will be offering kits for the pincushions later this month.
