Zakka Pincushion


All in all, it's been a rather difficult week around here. Last night I was exhausted and drained, but I wanted to finish my Zakka project before the weekend. What a sweet, simple little pincushion this was to make. It was almost therapeutic to sit down and put the pieces together.


I used one of Melody Miller's darling retro clocks from Ruby Star Shining, twill measuring tape, grey linen, Hometown Town News from Sweetwater, and a few buttons from my mother's stash. I would have added a stamped element, but I haven't yet bought any fabric stamping materials. Still, it's full of things that I love -- retro goodness, newsprint fabric, and favorite colors. All in all, a welcome bit of happiness in what had otherwise been a pretty bleak day.

Linking up to Finish It Up Friday, Sew & Tell Friday, Confessions of a Fabric Addict, and Zakka Along.

  4. What a cute pincushion. I decided to take a break from this week's project as I already have way too many pincushions. Your looks fantastic. Love the fabric and fabric tape you used.
