Pincushion Friday

Hi Hi HI!!! Happy Friday! So have you seen Ayumi's new book, Patchwork, Please! I've had it since it was first released and I figure I'm pretty much the last person ever to make one of these cute pin cushions! Monica posted her darling pincushion here, there's a flickr group here and there's even a Facebook page for a Zakka along starting next month! I've seen these pincushions popping up all over instagram and I can't resist it anymore. 
 
 
Patchwork Please

I haven't done any paper piecing in years, but it was easy to pick it up again, and this project  is the perfect jumping off point.  I pretty sure  I managed to finish it with in an hour or so.  It was just fun to be in my sewing room working on it.
 
Patchwork Please

All I can think about now is making the next one! They're the potato chip of pincushions I think.

Patchwork Please
 
I had a great week and I hope you did too!  Happy weekending!!! xo
