and these Pincushions were one of them.
I am sure you all guessed this one…..who would like a slice ???
After I finished the Watermelon slice…I was on a roll so I made “Karl” the Crab ! Is he too cute or what ?!
I love him!!! I just had to make him …my Birth sign is Cancer….so of course I needed a little crab…he was fun, easy & fast to make.
Which Pincushion should I make next ??
……I wanted a bunch of Strawberries…the Bitty Bug is too cute…the Suitcase is also a must… and not to mention the patterns I have sitting here ( the birdie, elephant, turtle, cupcake, etc..)
Where do I start ?
P.S: I have a question…you know when you sew a 2 circles together ( like I did for the crab ) and you leave a little opening to turn it Right Side Out….then you stuff it …and stitch the opening closed. Does anyone have a trick or tip how to make that stitched opening look nice ( so you don’t notice it) Do you know what I mean??? That last section never looks as neat ….grrrr…there has to be a trick ??
On the red polka dotted Pincushion, I sewed the circles completely ( without an opening) then cut a tiny slip in the middle …turned…stuffed and then stitched it closed…the lace flower & button covered up the hole. But I can’t always do that.
