"Moda Love Pincushion" 1st Feb Finish

Don't you just love them?

These pincushions are a Mode Bake Shop treasure. Click here for the free pattern.

My pincushions are a little bit different to the pattern. I used a "Glace"charm square pack, instead of 5 jelly roll strips. Believe it or not... I could not find any laying around. If you have this problem too, I just sewed three charms together top to bottom, then cut down the center making 2 x 2 1/2 by 14 inch then cut to required lenght. After making 10 strips ( 5 for the front) and the 5 I used for the back instead of the 10" layer cake square. Giving it a strippy look.

Also I added a Button up the top with a "Sweet Roll Ribbon" connected to it. Great to hold my little scissors.

The pattern does make two of these beauty's.... My second pincushion is packed and ready to post to someone special. So better keep an eye on the post box.

I'd like to congrats everyone for having a great Kreative January.. I popped over to a few blogs and Peg & Kath are got there work cut out for themselves this year.

Take Care
