Overview

From ultra-feminine and vintage chic to whimsically colorful and downright oddball, these pincushions redefine the form. And that’s sure to attract the many creative sewers and crafters who have chosen these small, charming canvases as the perfect vehicle to showcase fabulous fabric, simple embellishments, and novel ideas. Nearly 30 projects from a pool of talented designers provide plenty of inspiration, and there’s information on materials and adornments, stuffing options, and what makes a successful, functional pincushion. All that’s needed are beginning hand-sewing skills to stitch up such unique creations as tiny flowerpot and ladybug pincushions made from a bottle-cap base; a beehive complete with honey bee-topped pins; a selection of heirloom pincushions with vintage trim, lace, and buttons; or elegant silk fruit suited to a centerpiece as much as a sewing basket. Still others, like a tropical fish, a pair of cacti, or a crazy striped rooster, can double as plushy toys without the pins.

Very adaptable projects, beautiful illustrations and easy to do. I would recommend this for anyone working with kids who like to make unique gifts for other people. Create and make together!

I enjoyed this book and got several good ideas from it. Specifically the pin cushion using jar lids - altered it a little bit to include a decorative jar and had pin cushion with button jar! Great ideas for Christmas Presents. Book was very nicely done.
