done...

So most of you liked choice number 2, except for that one that just doesn't feel the PURE love...lol  She is in my guild and the swap so I guess I know who won't go home with my pincushion..  I finished both of them and have them all safely packed in plastic so they don't get dirty...

Why two?  Because the first one doesn't work..  Now a pin cushion has no moving parts, so you are probably wondering how could it not work?   The darker one on the bottom is the first one I made.  Deco weight fabric x 2 plus an iron on stabilizer means pins won't go through. hm... so I made the top one with PURE cotton with the deco weight patch and NO iron on stabilizer and I love it even better...  I think I will give it as a twosome...  We will celebrate the oops as Jamie would say...

alright, alright... you're going to give me trouble about this for a while, aren't you? ;)

It's a cute cushion!

Pretty little pinnies. You are starting us off on the right track.

I really like them. It's good to know about the "usability" factor.

I like them both for how they look. Sorry the first one won't let pins go through it. :( I never know what is best to use for filling in pincushions.

Very Modern! The top pincushion will be fun to use because sewing is a state of bliss.

Have a super great day.
