I finally came around to making this patchwork pincushion that I liked so much from the book Tout en patch'..., which I have mentionned numerous times on this blog. It is, by far, my favorite craft book from my small collection, and I return to it quite often for easy small projects.
The pieces for this patchwork were really small, some less than half an inch wide, so I decided to try paper-piecing them, and it worked like a charm. There is something about hand sewing that I find very relaxing and I have enjoyed making this little piece. I think the hardest part was selecting the fabrics, which I chose from my vintage scraps collection.
You can still join in the challenge here, and see what other participants have been making. For February, I will try something red to be in the spirit of Valentine's Day, crossing my fingers that I can get an earlier start than I did in January.
Happy crafting everyone!
