The Finished Project

I know you were on pins and needles trying to figure out what that fabric was going to become.The wait is over.Meet the chunky new pin cushion on the block.
I have been dying to make one of these ever since I saw the tutorial offered by the tremendously talented Bari J. The hardest part of the whole process was selecting the fabrics to use. Where were Tammy and Jennifer when I needed them? I was going for the funky fun look, and overall I like the way it turned out. Not all the seams are quite perfect, but there was minimal swearing involved while making it. That's always an upside for me when I'm sewing. And besides, I need to reserve my annual allotment of profanity for October when I make Halloween costumes. Hope you have a great weekend!

That is lovely, and the fabrics are divine! I'm totally showing my husband I'm not the only one who curses while sewing, I'm pretty sure on one of my last sewing projects my youngest learned many new swears in multiple languages. LOL I chalked it up to cultural exposure, shh...
