When I was choosing projects for my Gifty Galore , I saw the Flower Power Pincushion pattern from Sew Simple Patterns. Since I had already made several teacup pincushions, it was my time to branch out and make a daisy flower pot pincushion.
Looking to my scrap box, I found a bright tulip print from the Folk Heart collection for the soft rounded petals, a cheery yellow for center and, for the leaves, a lively green from Montecito. My daisy is planted in a small clay pot that makes it heavy enough to stay where it is placed.
As the instructions say, "a pincushion that will brighten up any sewing room. “Cut a few shapes, stitch a few stitches and with a little nip and tuck you’ll have yourself an adorable pincushion." It was that quick and easy. I made mine in less than an afternoon. That’s my idea for a great gift.
