Zakka Style Project 3: Zakka Pincushion

This is week 3 of the Zakka Style Sew Along.  This week’s project is a pretty straight forward pincushion.  Here is the example from the book:

Zakka Style Pincushion

Here is the pincushion I made:

I made the following changes from the directions in the book:

1.  Size – mine is a bit smaller.

2.  I used sand instead of polyester fiberfill inside.  I like the feel of sand and supposedly it keeps your pins sharp!  This did make attaching the buttons on the front and back to one another kind of funky because the “fill” does not stay in one place.

3.  I free motion stitched a design on fabric rather than stamping.

It’s cute but not as cute as the chicken pincushions I made a few weeks ago!

Cluck! Cluck!

Don’t you agree?
