This weeks finish

Janita from the Girl Friend Gap was the winner of my Holiday Lane giveaway.  She has been waiting patiently for me to finish the promised pin cushion.

I finally finished it about 20 minutes ago. It wasn't like I didn't try to finish it in a more timely fashion but it took 3 starts before I came up with an acceptable version.

All it is is a square with a bow on top.  My problem is that I took the tutorial seriously the first 2 tries and I just could not come up with a fabric bow that looked like the picture here.

I'm not sure why it took me to try 3 before my brain kicked in and said just use a real ribbon. DUH!


Actually, if I do say so myself,  I like it better and it was so much easier to do.  Mine is about a 3 1/2 inch cube.
So Janita if you are reading this, your pincushion will go out in the morning mail.


  1. Wow!! This is so cute and yes! I really like your version with the ribbon! Well done!! Lucky Janita :D

  2. That is just too darn cute. Well worth the wait for sure!!! :-) Congrats to Jantia!!

  3. Glad I didn't see this before it arrived! I loved the surprise of it .


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a message.
