Pin Cushion Parade Continues!

"Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value." –Albert Einstein

The Perfectly Pleasing Pincushion Parade Continues....and you can still link-up your pincushion posts for a chance to win some great prizes....the link-up will remain open for 4 more days....and will close on September 15....

We already have a great collection of linkups this year, some with fabulous tutorials for you to try.

So I made three new cushions  after finding them on the PPPP linkups..........

First I had to try that awesome star........I came home and just used some precut samples I had in my stash and put this together rather quickly.....I want to make another one now using fabrics that I choose but this was my sample try..........The photo on the left is the top and on the right is the bottom.....


The star is made with 15 total equal-size square patches. Mine were about 2x2....I think I would use 2.5 mini-charms next time. The top and bottom each have five square patches sewn together then the middle row of 5 squares connects the top and bottom.

                              Here is a side view of the finish

 I also made these two little pincushions from ideas I saw on the link-up:  First a biscorno made from a tiny stitchery I found at the second-hand store yesterday.

Then my little Sis and I made twin cathedral windows from another tutorial I found on the linkup:

I'm having so much fun at the parade! If you haven't already checked out the link-up please go on over and see the beautiful collections there!  And if you have some pincushions you're trying to hide from us.....bring'em out and parade them!

Good on you getting straight into making more pincushions!! I love how you incorporated the tiny stitchery into the Biscornu. I am keen to have a play with the Cathedral Window pattern.

You are doing a great job with making more pin cushions. I want to make a biscornu.

Those are so fun. I love the stitcher you one. That is a great idea for a small stitched piece. The Cathedral Window one has always been one of my favorite patterns.

I love how the PP Pincushion Parade gets you in pincushion-making mode. Terrific job on the new pincushions. I want to try the first 2 on my own as well. I already have the Cathedral Window, love how that looks so intricate and is so easy to make. Love what you've created.

My sister, Amy ( Amy Made That!) is a pro at making those Cathedral Windows pincushions.
