I'm playing around with some stamps trying to come up with some cute ideas for pin cushions. check this one out....
i have a few different work stations in my sewing room. i definitely need the diff pin cushions and diff sizes. i tend to knock them on the floor a lot too. have you ever stepped on a pin? OUCH
this is the backing fabric. i found this tucked in my FQ stash. totally forgot all about it. of course my top fabric is my fav drop cloth. have you all discovered this gem yet? shhh....dont let the hardware stores know about our obsession with painters drop cloths. they will jack up the price! people...seriously....you can buy it for C H E A P!
i used these stamps and ink. it wont be washed, so im not scared of the words coming off. if they fade, it just gives it character.
crushed walnut shells.....they are a MUST for pin cushions. they give it weight and also supposedly sharpen the needles/pins. sounds good to me.
you can find the crushed walnut shells in your local pet stores. it is actually "bird litter". no smell, not nasty....i promise! this was a huge bag and has lasted me a long time.
are you sewing this weekend? any fun projects out there?
