Pincushion Frame

I used to have a little sewing box where I had a pincushion, scissors etc to hand when needed. Time took its toll and I ended up with a drawer of bits and bobs including the pins and needles.IMG_5047

Growing a bit tired of searching for pins, I decided that I needed a pincushion that also holds a scissor etc that looks pretty enough to sit next to the couch in the living room.

As we are still in lockdown (Covid19 for future readers), I had a look through my stash of odd things and found a really pretty photo frame that I must have either bought ages ago or was given as a present (memory is blank on this one). My fabric stash could be the envy of every haberdashery shop so I had no problems putting this frame together. It didn’t even take 30 minutes…. and I think the result looks pretty good.

Lines are not straight (was the first time I used a decorative stitch) but that makes it unique. A little tip, I added the button and butterfly after I already assembled the frame – attach anything you like to add before securing it together. The stuffing was wadding I had leftover from a quilt I made and it worked a treat. No money spent (apart from purchasing everything in the past but that doesn’t count, does it?), assembled quickly and ended up with a pretty frame that looks great in the living room (matches the colour theme in my case).

Enjoy xx

The frame came from Dunnes Stores, the fabric was a special buy from Aldi (part of a fat quarter pack and absolutely no idea where I got the button and butterfly from (a big jar on the shelf).
