modern quilt guild pincushion swap

Image

The Austin Modern Quilt Guild is going to swap pincushions with several other chapters across the United States and Canada, so I decided to contribute two of my Zelma cuff pincushions!  Since I didn’t have any of the restrictions that I had at Moda Bakeshop, I played around with materials.  The turquoise is made from fabric I had printed. The strap is made of suede with silver Jones Tones foil over top & I am so happy about how it came out!!  But it’s always tough trying to get your sewing machine used to a different material than it’s used to handling & I lost steam battling with Rory.  So, the second cuff doesn’t have a felt lining because I couldn’t make myself sew one on it. 😦

I think they turned out very pretty & I’m going to be sad to see them go…

Well, my pincushion cuff project got me sliced from the Moda competition, but I still got to write up a tutorial for it. I’m not sure when they will post it on the Bake Shop though it’s live now- click here to peep my tutorial & the PDF’s will be up shortly…because I was VERY late with it. VERY. I’m a recovering perfectionist, so I had to fight myself from writing draft after draft & taking millions of photos & fussing with every anchor point in Illustrator! I’m my own worst enemy sometimes, but I got to sew another one during this whole crazy tutorial creation time & it came out just as lovely as can be! I used hot pink felt for the strap and yellow thread in my bobbin (because I had a bright yellow bobbin for some reason & needed to get rid of it!) & this color combination was so happy looking! But it’s only on the inside of the strap, so it’s like a little secret… Anyways, I just thought I’d share in case anyone out there liked my project! Happy Thursday! -rebecca

well, i finished…

I am quite proud of my cabochon because I busted out my plushie 3D sewing skillz! lol It was appliqued from a jelly roll from the Hello Luscious line. I decided I wanted something that was a play off of the real jewelry that I’ve inherited from my momma- But a softer, fluffier version that I can wear all the time! & hold my pins! & I must ashamedly say- Before this bracelet, my only pincushion was a miniature Crown Royal bag stuffed with Polyfil… So, I’m calling this a step up. 🙂 rebecca
