This weekend I took some time to attack the overflowing ironing-and-mending pile. There were loose buttons, torn beltloops, holes in elbows–you know, the usual. And, many wrinkled shirts, pants and napkins. All that was taken care of in about 3 hours of diligence.
After that I deserved a little play time.
This small pot (about 3-1/2″ across the top) was a yard sale find for 25-cents. CUTE!
I make a whirl of wedge shaped pieces a little over twice the diameter of the top. They were 3-1/2″ long and 1/2″ wide at the skinny end (two seam allowances) and between 2 and 2-1/2″ wide at the base.
Some gathering and stuffing and a button later–Ta-dah! A pincushion. It was play time for me and a fun result.
Hopefully I will have a little more play time before back to school Tuesday…I hear fabric calling! For now, though, it is time to walk the dog. She is fun, and keeps me from making exercise excuses!
