Pretty in Pink

Oh how I knew that I would not be able to stop once I started!

Since the sewing machine has been set up I have been hooked.

I found a fab Tutorial for a Needle Case at Messy Jesse.
I thought that as I had a new pin cushion I could have a go at a matching needle case!

So I adapted/customised the pattern and came up with this.......

What do you think?

I am so slightly addicted and made 2 cushions for a friend tonight!!!

I have already decided I am going to make some more Pin Cushions and matching Needle Cases, and have chosen some pretty strawberry fabric. Can't wait to get home tomorrow after work & swiss ball class to get started. Nipped to the fabric shop at lunch and bought some proper toy stuffing so hopefully the pin cushion will stuff better than before.

Hope your week is going well Sophie xxxx

You have been busy! You can always put emery sand in the base of the pincushion to weight it.

I have really enjoyed reading your's full of things that I really love!

I wondered about a couple of things - I wondered if you have done anything yet with the large white cabinet/cupboard you bought.....I have found a similar blue and white in my inlaws shed and really need some inspiration for it!

I also wondered where you bought the 500ml/1L containers you have on your shelf, I really like those!

Loved Kirstie's Homemade Home too :)

Best wishes to you!
