Rainbow Pincushion - Close Up

Rainbow Pincushion - Close
Originally uploaded by marleah.

Check it out - my first pincushion! I do not usually sew, and I don't have a machine, so this is HANDSEWN, people! I did this for the Color Craftalong on Craftster. The color for January is "rainbow," so I found this fabric in my stash, and it turned out really cute. It took me about an hour to totally do (cutting, stitching, sewing, etc.), but if I had a sewing machine, that would speed it up considerably. I did have to wait a day so that I could go to Walmart and find the perfect button for the center - and I succeeded! I am just really proud of this. It's a little wonky on one side, where I had to close up the hole I used to stuff it (the opposite side that is pictured of course). It's still extremely cute, and I'm excited about it. It was fun to make.

Hi Marleah! The pincushion is so cute! Great colors!

I wanted to thank you for joining Project Spectrum, and for putting up the note about it on Craftster. I didn't know there was another craft-along that did the colors the same way...

Best wishes,
