SEWING: Pincushion-mania

Raw Edge Applique Pincushion by Anorina Morris (

It’s pincushion-mania around here lately. I joined the #PinnieParade challenge on Instagram, expecting to be completely inspired for the first few days, but for my interest to wane... well, I’ve not only amazed myself with keeping up with the challenge, but I’ve even got a buffer for a couple of days worth of pincushions at the ready.

I posted about the pinnie challenge the other week and have a few more pincushions to share here today. You can never have too many pincushions, right? Well, perhaps you can... but I won't let that thought stop me.

Made by Ali of Arabesque Scissors

Some of the pincushions were made by me, but others (like this one above and below) were made for me, by online friends. How wonderful is the online crafty community?

This strawberry pincushion (above) was made with some left over fabrics from the pinwheel table runner. The strawberry design is a free one I offer over on Craftsy.

I decided on this lavender pincushion the other night. I drew the basic outline for the stems and then made the blooms with 3 shades of purple/lilac and little lazy-daisy stitches. I honestly love how this turned out.

At the end of the month, I hope to make a great big collage with 31 pincushions. Let’s see if I can keep it up and reach that goal ;-)
