Little Taupe Pin Cushions

I have been busy making little pin cushions. These are all from my Pin Cushion Club designs.

I am off to Japan in November and I like to take some little gifts with me to give away to quilting contacts, friends and suppliers, so I thought these would be good.

My favourite one is the Tumbling Leaves - I think.

Or then again maybe my favourite is the Crazy Patch.

But I also like the sashiko one - I usually do this with ecru thread on indigo fabric which is 
more traditional for sashiko. This time it was time for a change so it was off to the hand 
dyed pink sashiko thread form Takayama in the mountains of Japan and taupe fabric 
from my favourite Japanese supplier.

This is the latest little gift from Japan - one of my suppliers made it and sent it to 
me in my last parcel from her company. It is a macaroon and is just so cute. It is just 2" 
across and opens up with the zip going almost all the way around the middle.

And inside

I'll be back in a couple of days with Taupe Owls!!!!! See you soon.

  1. I love ALL the pin cushions Robyn. The Macaroon will be ideal for storing your thimble.
