Finally, I have a decent pincushion to my name!
I've been in need of a pincushion for ages. As a crafter I had to make my own, of course, and the pincushion kept being pushed further and further down my 'to do list'.
Also, I've always had this weird problem where I can rise to a difficult challenge and find an answer; but give me something simple to do and I struggle, make endless mistakes and generally take forever to complete the task.
What could be more simple than this pincushion tutorial from WhipUp? Yet, the pincushion pictured here took three attempts, two needles (one broken and one that got mysteriously bent into a right angle!) and lots of cussing!
Now that I've finally made it I'm desperate to make more - lots more! ... now that's why I'm a crafter...
