string piecing pincushions

This is a good way to use up small strips of fabrics that may otherwise be thrown away. After sewing several strips together...usually on a foundation of muslin...square the piecing up and sew edge pieces on a backing piece and fill with your choice of stuffing or filling. I use crushed walnut shells...found in the pet section of Petsmart. Sand is another option....or fiberfill...stuffed firmly. A girl can never have too many pincushions!!♥♥

  1. You've been busy as a little bee haven't you!!! All these projects (the shirt bag, the silk tie purse, the pincushions) are really nice. Pretty soon you will have one pincushion for each pin! Hope to see you next Wednesday at Anita's.
