Well, May Britt published a tutorial for making pin cusions on Friday, and I had to try. :) The first one - I figured after finishing it - I made wrong.. so I had to make another one.. (but it was so fun to make, so I really didn't mind.)

I used 1" squares and three different fabrics I almost never use (they're not really matching anything.. except black) and it looks very.. funky? Atleast very 70's. :)

The first one I made, I used three of the Japanese fabrics I got for my birthday (also 1" squares). It looks like a ball, but it's so cute! Even my BF thinks it's cute. :)

And, as a treat, here is a picture of one of the dragons I bought a couple of years ago when we were on vacation in England (London, to be precise). I found this little stubborn guy in a small crafts shop somewhere around the markets in Camden Town. I love dragons, especially gothic looking, and this one's one of my very special favorites. :)

Both are nice. It is easy to do wrong and get the wrong shape, but that shape is also cute. I think I have to make one tiny pincushion too with 1" templates.

Hello from Germany. May Britt was the one as well. Seeing both your pin cushions, I fell very tempted to make some as well. A right one and a wrong one! Take care.
