I did this with the doll quilt fabric and found that I really missed the fabric when it was gone! So I decided to make myself a souvenir:
I'm quite proud of myself with this one. I didn't particularly use a tutorial, just used a mix of ideas I've either already tried or read about. It was a little fiddly, but definitely worth the effort!
There are however two problems with this pin cushion:
- Having two layers of fabric in the middle means the pins don't slide in very easily
- It feels more than a little strange stabbing a heart every time you put in a pin!
In the interest of honesty, I'll show you the back. I'll blame the stretchy blue fabric for the less-than-central positioning!
I think I might start doing this regularly - making a small project with the fabric from a big project I've given away. I love the idea of making a quilt like this one day which contains all the fabrics I've ever used. That's quite a way off now though!
PS The fabric basket was tidied recently which meant it wasn't full enough for me to see the fabric from my sofa. Does this mean I should un-tidy it?!
