26 February 2009

okay here's a new tutorial for yall.
and don't worry i'll explain the strikeout of the word pincushion.
promise.

take 3 charm squares from a charm pack.
any 3 you like.
{i'm using hartfield by barbara brackman.}

cut all 3 of those in half.

find your favorite arrangement of 3 strips together.
make 2 of these little guys.
{don't forget to press...we want nice pretty seams.}

with right sides together...
sew all the way around, leaving a 1" opening for turning.

cut off all 4 corners.

turn right side out.

stuff it like a thanksgiving turkey.
then hand sew the opening shut.

tada!!!
you have just made your very own pincushion.
i mean...

baby doll pillow!!!
here is sallie mae on her new pillow.

how could i say no to that???
she melts my ♥.
so baby doll pillow it is.

enjoy.
no matter what you use it for.

Oh that is so cute! That sometimes happens here too...one project takes on a different purpose that I originally intended. But, that's why we have stashes, right?!
