Friday Finish

When my Mom said she'd like an armchair pincushion this week....

I hopped over to pinterest and looked around.
;)
It's so easy to find inspiration there!

I used ONLY the scraps
that were ON TOP of the other scraps!
I didn't have time to dig too deep.
The bottom piece is actually an orphan block.
I added a nine patch pincushion
and some little pockets.

There's a pocket for scissors
and a bigger pocket for thread scraps or something else!

Inspiration for this project came from Amy.

Hope you like it MOM!!!

**********

I'm not the only one who MAKES at my house.
These days, I have a nurse who works with my foster baby.

She WHIPPED this little beanie up
after I purchased a BEE costume for the little one.

Isn't it SWEET????
Those little antennae are simply AMAZING!

  1. Oh I love the little bee hat! What a clever lady she is (I cannot knit or crochet to save myself). Great job with the pincushion - great use of scraps.

  2. That is one cute bee hat! Your mom will love her new armchair pin cushion. I may have to figure out one for myself some day. Better than stashing pins in the armchair.

  3. You came up with a great pin cushion for your moms chair. She should get some great mileage out of it. So nice that the nurse also has crafty talents. Those antenna are a wonderful touch for any self respecting bee.

  8. What an adorable little hat! And one great nurse.
    I stuck pins in my armchair till I made myself a pin cushion back in March. I am so happy that I did! Anyone who does some handwork needs one. Your mom will be very happy!
