Today, finally I will show you the gift I made for roommates and friends at Leadership. I made one for each of my roommates and a few more for a few more friends that I met up with there. I hope everyone liked them. I was going to do something completely different, then had this idea and I'm so glad I went with this idea!!! I made them using a variety of SU fabric. After I made some with the Spice Cake fabric I was filled with panic! It was in the mini catalog, it's not current anymore!!!! But fortunately for me, it's on the carry over flyer and so it's still current-whew!!!!
I'm sure you're looking at them going, cute but what are they? The flowers are little pins that you can stick to your clothes, a bag, an apron, etc. The little frames are pin cushions! Aren't they cute!!!!!?! These little frame pin cushions are everywhere and catching on quick. They're so easy to make! I used the cardboard that came with the frame, trimmed it slightly. Stuck batting on the front, covered it with fabric and secured it on the back with a glue gun. Just stick it back in the frame, stick the back of the frame on and you're done! EASY!!!
I have to say that my favorite is either the one with the Beau Chateau fabric or the ones with the Spice Cake fabric. I love those fabrics, I love the other ones too, but I just love the patterns on the Beau Chateau and Spice Cake. Each flower is finished off with either a button or Antique Brad.
They're so cute!! I wish I could have left them lined up on my desk forever. They were so fun to look at!!!!
