A new pincushion


It's been another busy time....I've started to notice a rhythm to the school year and the lead up to the long summer hols are always hectic: me frantically trying to get things ready for kids who are going to be bored (or is that just mine?!) and lots of school events. Mixed in with some secret sewing and time has been flying!!! So it was a lovely surprise last week when a gift from Jessie at Sew and Quilt landed on my door mat. 


Jessie has recently launched pre-cut paper pieces for EPP'ing - I think she's got all the shapes covered!!! - and I got the chance to try them out with this cute hexagon pincushion kit, the perfect project for a bit of relaxing sewing over the weekend!


I thread basted my hexies (through the back only) and have to say that the paper shapes are just the right thickness to make basting nice and easy and give a good shape but also strong enough that after removing them they are still good to use again which would be great for doing a bigger project, or maybe even another pincushion!



The pincushion is finished with a button through the center to give it a bit of a donut feel! I used a button for both sides because I couldn't quite decide which was my favourite so now I can choose depending on my mood!!!

If you fancy any paper pieces for yourself then do pop along to Jessie's shop - at the moment she's including a free Hexagon Pincushion pattern with every order! - I think I'm going to find myself another project for the summer, EPP is perfect for picking up and putting down whilst the kids are around.......

Today's sky - cloudy but sunny and warm!

DISCLAIMER - I was sent a free hexagon pincushion kit to try out, all opinions are my own.
