Erin from Why Not Sew? organized a strawberry pincushion swap a few weeks ago, and our packages must be mailed by... Yesterday! Don't worry, I made the deadline! I made the two strawberries in the first picture, plus I added some tidbits of sewing goodies from my stash into the package! I hope my swap partner enjoys!
I've never made a strawberry pincushion before, but this tutorial helped lead me in the right direction. I couldn't find my poly-fil stuffing (we're still living out of boxes around here!), so I had to cut up bits of batting. I did make sure that pins could easily poke in before I made too many. You can see below that I also experimented with a Christmas strawberry, but I just didn't like out it turned out. I'll have to try again someday.
Evelyn enjoyed some Grandma time outside while I rushed to take pictures before the rain came. The farmers were in a rush too... get as much combined before the fields get too wet!! As always, there's Mute begging for some attention :)
