Getting a late start here as I have been having trouble accessing my blog. One minute it's there, another it's gone. Poof, just like that. Really.
I'm sure you've already noticed that I have a fascination with pincushions. I can't stop making them. After designing the segmented yo-yo pin, I knew I had to make a pincushion similar to it. This pincushion has nine segments, I think maybe a little too many. At this point, the pieces get very small and get difficult to work with. I kept adding one segment after the other when I couldn't get the first and the last to meet without puckering. I think it turned out fairly well for a prototype.
This is my last pin for the month of February and probably for a while. Whew! Although I love making pins, it is time to move on to other things. I used fused fabric throughout as it adds body and also stops the ends from fraying. The circular scalloped center was made by a Fiskars scallop scissor. I think it adds interest to an otherwise plain center. It is topped with a tiny flower shaped button.
The tutorial I promised is coming along, slowly, very slowly. This tutorial business is alot of work and certainly not the instant gratification that I'm used to. Don't worry, I won't forget about it and hopefully will get it posted sometime next month.
I hope you enjoy your weekend.
