Crochet pin cushion

Nothing completed this weekend, although many things which are almost there.
So I thought I’d share a most enjoyable make.
My crochet pin cushion.

The inspiration came from this site, via a pin on Pinterest.

Mine is a little larger as I wanted it a little weighty so it stayed put on my work bench.

Here is my arty shot! I’ll definitely use the oil cloth as a back drop again.

About lovelucie1

I cannot sit without something in my hands to sew, crochet, sketch etc. This becoming something of an addiction. In fact, I start to get twitchy if I am stationary somewhere, waiting for an appointment, waiting for my daughter, away with work, without some project to keep my hands busy. Minutes wasted make me anxious. This blog logs my progress to raise funds through my creations to feed my textile habbit.

  4. Great pincushion, and such a good idea to put some weight in – mine hasn’t any and tends to skid across the table if I’m too enthusiastic!

  8. Lovely pin cushion – I need to make another one and putting rice in the bottom to give it weight is a great idea. I used to have black and white dotty oilcloth (well, pvc actually!) on my table, until my children made a nice big hole in it – I miss it, it makes a great background for photos.

    • Thank you for your lovely comment. I’m going to keep an eye out for some neutral oil cloth for backdrop in the future. It’s great that it doesn’t kink like my usual paper backdrop.
