Pincushion cuff

I’ve been wanting a pincushion I could wear on my wrist for a while now and I bit the bullet today and made one using the tutorial on the Michelle Patterns blog.  This reminds me that I’ve purchased a number of her bag patterns and I really need to have a go at making the Messenger Bag next.

I dug out some fabric I bought at the recent Homecraft sale and also made a covered button using  a scrap of the fabric.  I’m really happy with it and you’ll definitely see me using it at all future BSC meets.  It doesn’t take long to make and I highly recommend it.  Definitely follow the suggestion to use a strip of plastic to stop you accidently poking pins into your wrist.

Speaking of BSC meets, we miss all of you who haven’t been for a while.  So make sure you come to the April meet and show us what you have been making.

  1. That’s awesome. I’m making one of these with my left over quilting scraps!

  2. CUTE! But… how do you avoid stabbing yourself in the wrist? 😛

  3. I sewed a strip of plastic from a milk bottle into the strap where the pincushion sits.

  4. Great idea! Think I’d better make one of those too. I have 3 magnetic pincushions and two other regular ones and they never are where I want them when I want them. 🙂

  5. Fan-freaking-tastic. Funky, functional, and eco-friendly (recycle, baby!). And that cuff wouldn’t look out of place on the roller derby circuit either. No sirree….
