Happy Friday, everyone! In a previous post here, I hinted of a project I was working on. Well, I am delighted to debut my newest pincushion design today. It's called "Sitting Pretty"—a flirty and feminine boudoir chair. Can you just imagine a larger version sitting in a ladies dressing room? That was my inspiration! The featured fabric is Carina Gardner's cheerful Songbird by Riley Blake Designs.
My little chair harbors a hidden bonus—it doubles as a handy sewing box for stashing needles, thread, and other sewing accessories. Simply remove the seat cushion to stash or retrieve your supplies!
Because I'm also a big fan of the pink/gray/beige color combo, I had to make a pincushion in Lori Holt's Daisy Cottage fabrics. This one was actually my prototype. Of course, you can customize the chair to suit your style with any type of fabric. In fact, I'm making one with reproduction 1800s prints right now.
I chose the same fabric for the interior that is on the seat cushion, then stashed my embroidery scissors, perle cotton, and needles inside. How handy is that?!
Because I want to spread the pincushion love, I'm sharing the instructions to make my whimsical design on the Riley Blake Designs website. To visit them, click on their button in the left-hand side of my blog. Feel free to make them for yourself and give as gifts but you may not sell the pattern or the finished pincushions. I hope to have finished pincushions for sale here at some point. I have a couple more designs coming out in magazines in the coming year, so come back for more pincushion inspiration!
