In spite of how many pincushions I have, there’s never ever one helpful whenever I need one. I end up with pins within my lips or laying around every-where, neither that is quite safe!
Really my errant pin problems are over, since I have a really precious and extremely useful Toadstool Wrist Pincushion. It was quite easy which will make with sensed scraps, some remnant elastic and some plastic presentation.
The motivation when it comes to toadstool/mushroom design originated from the domed shape of the pincushion it self. It reminded me of just a little fairy home – therefore whimsical. You are able to leave off the places if you like it ordinary, or embellish it even further with an embroidery design of your own. One from this book would be beautiful.
These result in the perfect little present for a friend that really loves sewing, and an incredible inclusion to an antique tin sewing system.
I’ve added a plastic base plate to safeguard my wrist from getting punctured if I’m too passionate with my pinning. The plastic originated from some product packaging that I fished out from the recycling bin. Addititionally there is a printable template included, however, if you can’t be bothered with printing (or have run out of ink), dimensions are included in step 2 for self drafting.
