A Cushion for Pins...

Happy Bank Holiday Monday!

Well, it's a little miserable today here in the North of North Lincolnshire, but perfect weather for crafting, and watching old movies with a duvet! Lovely! I've just been reminiscing with an old movie, 'Rear Window' by Alfred Hitchcock - a classic!

I just wanted to show you the results of some of my first attempts at sewing. Do you like it - it's a pin cushion! It's not perfect, but it's a start and I really like it! The material is from IKEA {No, I don't actually live there!}. I made it after watching this video here and here, I used a plate as a template for the circle, and the rest is history.

Thanks for stopping by today. Tomorrow I will have news of changes happening in my life, so if you can come by tomorrow, I would love to share them with you!
