This eyeball pincushion tutorial from Jen made the rounds a few months ago but I didn’t see it listed here on CT so I wanted to make sure everyone knew about it. (Great idea to use Flickr to generate the tutorial!) Jen makes all sorts of beautiful pincushions and thankfully now has an Etsy store if you don’t think you have the time (or patience) for one of these.
Am I the last person on earth to hear about The Pincushion Challenge? Every month there’s a different theme and to participate you just make your pincushion and upload a photo to the flickr group. Lots of great inspiration to be found in the previous months’ photo sets too.
Question: What do you prefer to use for stuffing your pincushions? I notice lots of people are using poly-fill but I’m wondering what the pros and cons are of using sand or emery?
