Now (yawn) I will return to the ongoing series...
This is the back of a crazy quilted purse I created (for myself actually) in 2013
This is the front of another CQ purse, also made in 2013 as a gift for a friend.
Also in 2013, I took some thrifted metal napkin rings,
a thrifted wooden bowl,
and came up with this pincushion.
It rapidly became my every-day, stuffed full of needles,
and well used pincushion.
If you want to make one yourself, just look for 7 napkin rings, each about 1 - 1 1/2" high; and a wooden salad bowl (test fit the rings to see that they will fit). Make a 'pouf' out of fabric stuffed with a little bit of fibrefill that will fit on the top of each of the ring. Glue the rings into the bottom of the bowl and then use a hot glue gun to glue the poufs into the rings. I added an artificial green leaf, just for fun.
