How's your week been so far? Going well? Getting back into the post holiday swing of things? Why is it that short work weeks sometimes feel longer than regular weeks? Hmph...
Ok! This here is something I made for my pal, Jill for Christmas. I saw this first on Pinterest (ack! I can't find the link, I'll find it and edit this post tonight!) and knew that I HAD to make one because it looked like fun, because I knew Jill would love it, and because I already had the perfect fabric.
I give you the worlds largest pincushion!
No joke, it's a biggin.
I knew Jill would love these fabrics because we've talked about this line before.
I cut into my Bliss stash to make this, and I'm so glad I did. I was a little worried once I got into the project, this was a fiddly job. Let's just say that I'm really glad I have one of those handy ergonomic seam rippers, because I ripped this little baddie apart several times.
The end result was worth it though, I think it came out sew cute, and Jill loved it, yaaaay!
See, I told you it's big! It's the size of a small cake!
I love the way it looks, and now that I've been through the whole thing and have a feel for it, I'm going to be making one of these for myself out of my Happy Mochi Yum Yum fabric, (I ♥ Happy Zombie!). That's my favorite fabric line of all time. I have several projects lined up for in in the coming months.
All in all, I'd say this wasn't exaclty an easy sewing project (although, I'm sure it was just me... I was kind of stressed when I was making it) but the results were pretty darn good (I think) and I'll definitely make it again.
Let me know what y'all think!
