Hi and welcome to day 17 of the pincushion blog hop hosted by Crystal from www.daybrookdesigns.com.
This has been such a fun blog hop. I have enjoyed seeing so many different pincushions.
Today's pincushion uses the basic pincushion that I posted last week.
You can find it here https://kathyskwiltsandmore.blogspot.com/2020/06/pincushion-blog-hop-day-10.html?m=1. The only difference is the size of the square. I cut it 5 1/2 x 6. You could also do a 6 x 6. Then I put a fun epp hexie flower on the top, before I stitched it together.
I stitched this pincushion totally by hand as I am still under construction in my house.
I have a tutorial on my blog for epp https://kathyskwiltsandmore.blogspot.com/2020/06/english-paper-piecing-epp-tutorial.html?m=1. For this project I used 3/4" hexies and I stitched it on with a whipstitch using aurifil thread #2311 in a 50 weight.
You could also use embroidery floss 2 strands) and do a blanket stitch to put it on.
You could also put some polyester batting behind the flower to give it a bit more puff.
I can't wait to see how you all decide to embellish your pincushion.
Thank you for sharing.ReplyDelete
