I made a new pincushion. Yes, I know that I need another pincushion like I need a hole in the head. I can't help myself and I can guarantee you that this probably won't be the last one that I make either.
I've been playing around with what I call a folded hexagon yo-yo. I know you quilters probably have another name for these. I have referred to them as yo-yo's for as long as I can remember so I guess I will continue to do so. As they say, you can't teach an old dog new tricks. I don't qualify as a dog (I hope) but I qualify as old. By the way, I was born in The Territory of Hawaii. Yes, that is what my birth certificate says. Hawaii wasn't even a state yet. So you can believe me when I say that I am old. I digress. Where were we? Oh, the folded hexagon yo-yo's and pincushions. Well, my yo-yo's were stitched onto the pincushion by hand (you could do it by sewing machine too) prior to folding so that the stitches are hidden inside the yo-yo. They're done in a similar fashion to attaching the round yo-yo's to quilts or other fabric objects.
These are folded fabric flowers attached to color coordinated bobby pins for little girls to wear in their hair. Those little white marks on the flowers are supposed to be polka dots. There are so many folds in the flower petals that the polka dots kind of disappeared. I guess I need to use smaller polka dots on these flowers or nix the polka dots altogether.
I hope you all have a good day.
