Ouch that HURT!



Just kidding... well I did prick myself a few times. I always do when I sew LOL. I wanted a break for the night from cards to make a little something I need and for another entry for the Moxie Fab World fun with fabric challenge. I made a few for my craft room for the pins I put on cards and LO's and for needles. So heres my little cushion all stuffed and fluffed:


Recipe:
Fabric: Cosmo Cricket (love their fabric)
Felt: PTI raspberry fizz and white
Other: PTI bloom dies, Needle, Thread

I love the line of fabric from Cosmo Cricket, I have lots of it. I cant wait to use it. This pin cushion is the same basic concept as my fabric flower tutorial but you are going to make the circle at least 5.5" round, you can go bigger too just keep in mind that whatever size your circle is your pincushion will be half that size and also you will stuff it as full as possible. And make sure to use a strong thread to make sure it doesnt break when you pull it closed. Instead of putting a button like on the flower you can add some fun felt cutouts to the top, go crazy with it. Here I used the PTI beautiful blooms flower dies for the top. Love it and its so handy having these around the craft room and you can whip these out in 10 minutes. :) :)

Dont forget ... the challenge closes on Friday at 11:59pm, so hurry and get your card or project in. 

On another personal note, can I please ask for some prayers? My fiances Dad is very ill, hes not doing well at all. He refuses a hospital till he can get his affairs in order. He keeps thinking if he goes in he will never come back out. Hes in really bad shape and his health is heading down hill fast. So I ask could you please say a prayer for him (Jim) that God may put his healing hand on him and ease his pain. If for some reason I dont post this weekend till possibly Sunday that means we probably took him to the hospital. Im praying that he can hold on that long. Thank you kindly.

Many blessings to you! :) :)

Dear Jenny, I have a small idea of what you are going through. my daughter and son-in-law went through this in March with his dad who lived all the way in Montana.9he did have a son just an hour away though. His dad is blessed to have you and your fiance close to help him. I will pray for all of you. Remember,Jesus said he would never leave us, so I hope you feel can comfort each other. Judy hayes
