I love this pincushion caddy from Seams to Me and have wanted to make one for myself ever since I made my mom one for Christmas. Hmm, apparently I never posted about hers. Here are a couple pictures of it:
I even knew right away that I wanted to make it in prints of white and blue. Well, I amended that to blue/white/yellow and finally had the perfect collection of scraps and was ready to sew it together. I swear, cutting out pieces for clothes or other projects is my biggest hurdle in sewing. I cut out the pieces a few weeks ago and then yesterday was able to very quickly put this together.
I can’t imagine how the picture in the book is so unlumpy and the center tube stays round, but I’m happy with mine, bumps and all.
It’s like a cheerful little beach ball, except it is happy to receive pins!
