pincushion So here is my very firts foray into the Pincushion Challenge It’s for the eats topic and it’s the standard shape pincushion with chain stitch embroidered fruit. The fruit was inspired by a pattern from an old craft book I found while thrifting a few weeks ago. Please ignore my handstitching.

Funnily enough while I was halfway through this cushion R. looks over at what I’m doing and says “You should make a pincushion.” Now Sometimes I just can’t tell if he’s being funny or he’s making a softly worded comment about the pins that seem to live in the arm of my chairs. Oh well.

Also I had one of those, oh god I need to make this now moments after thinking I need something flat and largeish to carry a sketchbook to life drawing while riding my bicycle. So I made this over the shoulder back pack style thing out of a pillow case. It is made from a thrifted pillowcase has and some curtain lining as lining, which makes it nice and solid, it holds an A3 sketchbook both ways. Now I need to make a pencil roll out of the leftover material.sketchbook bag
