Late Birthday Present

Yesterday was a planning meeting at the Allatoona Guild and my friend Mary brought me a belated birthday gift - aren't I a lucky girl to have a friend like Mary!

Last year I taught the guild how to make zipper bags and managed to talk Mary out of one during the class. She made me another one - look at the wonderful pincushion fabric.

Then she made a very unusual pincushion for me. The top photo is of the pincushion closed so that it can be used as a pincushion. The second photo is of it opened with the lime green felt pockets. You can store needles and pins in the felt and they stay safe while it is folded up and being used as a pincushion.
Thank you again Mary!

  1. I just came across your blog from Robins blog. This needlecase/ pincushion looks exactly like mine. I have a tutorial on my blog. I wonder if Mary did it from there. Khris in Oz


I would love to hear from you. Make sure I have a way to contact you if you have a question.
