I have started making my "secret Santa" gifts for this Christmas. Yes I know its early but sometimes its great to potter with different quilting techniques especially hand work.
I got the idea of this pin cushion from as display at Cushla's quilt shop in Devonport (Auckland, New Zealand). My friend likes Lynette Anderson fabrics and on a small scale this was achievable over a couple of weeks.
I used felt to form the base with tritex inside the bottom to stabilise it and to prevent it from tipping. It is stuffed with pure wool fibre. As I didn't have a pattern to work from so there are stages I would now do differently if I was to make another. Its probably just a little tall, however will work well with Clover's extra long quilting pins.
Happy stitching friends
