I totally forgot to post this vintage pin cushion on Saturday. Isn't it sweet? Does it get any better than pink velvet?
I even love the beads, sequins and GOLD ric rac! I am guessing the person that made this loved to sew.
My husband was away this weekend to visit his mom so I sewed late into the night. I found these Work In Progress Bags by Crazy Mom Quilts and thought they would be a nice simple project. The vinyl takes some getting used to but it is a fun project and useful. The above bag is 14" x 18", I have my next Sew Together Bag in there with everything I need ready to sew.
This one did not turn out as well, truth be told, but I was tired and should not have been sewing. It was supposed to be 9" x 12" and I cut it wrong so it is 9" x 9". It still works for my Posey bocks.
Just to keep it real, this is a very badly installed zipper, again I plead tiredness. It is functional though... There are tips in the pattern for sewing with vinyl, save the tissue that comes with the vinyl, it helps! I also used a zipper foot and a walking foot which she does not. I on the other hand need all the help I can get.
