Pincushion parade blog hop day 17

Hi and welcome to day 17 of the pincushion blog hop hosted by Crystal from

   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   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  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.
