New Pincushion/ do you want a tutorial

handmade pincushion
In the items in Great-grandma's stuff was a real cool pincushion, and a not-completed pincushion of the same fashion. So, after studying them for a while, I thought I figured out how to make one. I was correct, but about 90% the way through I figured out a better way of sewing the section pieces together. They should have been sewn into 4 sets of clusters of three pieces each. If any one wants to make one let me know. I sewed mine one piece at a time onto the main section, and just kept adding to that, which in the end made it a little hard to add the last piece. That could have been a lot easier, but I still very much like the end result. I added a tassel; hers did not have one, but I thought it would look better hanging. Don't ask me why, but most pincushions (pinkeeps) I make for myself always have to be hung up. I just like them that way. I will try to take a picture of the two she had today or tomorrow and post them. I liked them so much and figured I wouldn't get to keep one, so I made one of my own.

My husband wants me to make another the other way and make a tutorial so others can make one, too. If anyone is interested in a tutorial, let me know in this post and I will try to get to it in the near future.

The fabric and batting for this one was gifted to me, so all it cost me was my time which was most of Saturday. Because I was home sick from work, I needed something to keep my hands busy. I am feeling much better today.
