Rusting Pins

There is certainly a way to know that, maybe, just maybe you’ve had a your sewing project for too long.

When the pin has been in your fabric long enough to rust, it might be time to finish the project.

I think so.

Pin Cushion Bracelet

Have you ever been at the cutting table or ironing board, ready to pin only to look at your pincushion on the other side of the room? Huge sigh. I sigh in frustration too often. I’m at the sewing machine and pincushion is on the ironing board. And vice versa. Well not after today. I will longer sigh in frustration. Today, I made my first pincushion bracelet.

I don’t know what I’m more happy about: this cute pincushion or not having to stop what I’m doing to go get a pin. I think both.

I used this Wrist Pincushion pattern, leftover fabric from a dress, a few stitches, velcro and some glue. I couldn’t be more pleased. Will probably make a few more. But for now, I’m ready.

Happy Sewing!
