FO: Pincushion Organizer

I'm pretending today is Thursday, since here in America, Wednesday is the 4th of July. So, I have two two-day workweeks. Kind of weird, but I'm embracing it. I used my Sunday wisely, and was able to be in my sewing room for a lot of the day.

What do you think, partner?

I started and finished this fun pincushion organizer for the Modernista swap. I used Elizabeth Hartman's pattern, posted on Sew Mama Sew. The pattern is very straightforward, and the only trouble I had was handsewing the closure in a pretty way. Luckily, the seam is hidden in use. The pattern uses just under three fat quarters, and a small piece of felt. The cushion is very substantial, as it is filled with rice.

Fabrics used are all from the stash. The interior of the scrap bag is a Ruby Sundae Stripe, the exterior, is of course Mono Pez in navy, and the pocket panel fabric is from Leah Duncan's Maya.

Hopefully, my partner likes it! She's been quiet in the group, so I'm going with my gut. I'm still deciding what to make for my second item, but I've still got all month to figure that out.

Here's hoping your Monday (or Thursday!) is a happy one!

  8. Oh my gosh, I started making two of these pincushions last night! I love the pattern, and your fabric choices are great! I'm sure your swap partner will love it!! I'm making one for myself and one for my sister using Purfect Mischief in silver and some Kona solids. I wasn't sure I was going to make the scrap bag, but you've inspired me to do it!

  15. I don't know how she wouldn't like this! Your fabrics are awesome...and seriously, who doesn't need one of these in their sewing arsenal?? I am so sick of vacuuming up my threads I just toss on the floor so maybe I should make one too -- ha ha! Do you use a thread catcher?
