I Love Fall!!

I’m working up some crafts for my son’s bake/craft sale fund raiser at school. These little felt ornaments are super easy. Just cut out two felt shapes, embroider the details on the front of one shape, sew together and stuff!! For the pumpkin’s stem, I wound green yarn around the felt stems. I used the same green yarn for a hanger on those. With the leaves, I stitched on ribbon hangers.

Super easy and cute, hopefully they will make his school some money!

Pin Cushion Roundup

Eyeball Pincushions

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.

Here’s an awesome tutorial, with tons of great photos, for a square pincushion from paper. string. cloth.

Would you rather knit your pincushion? Wait until you see this wearable poppy pincushion from Sarah with an H.

And in one last bit of pincushion news I noticed that Betz White is working on some new flower pot pincushions and of course they’re adorable!

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?
