One of my favourite things about quilting and needlework is all the fabulous tools!
Some you buy, others you can make. Below is a tomato pincushion designed by Fig Tree Quilting from their book "Fresh Vintage Sewing". As soon as I saw it I knew I had to make it and now I have one sitting right beside my sewing machine!
Tomato Pincushion by Fig Tree & Co.
Although I really like my tomato pin cushion, my favourite is still my little Tigger!
I bought him many years ago and he has held the Pin Cushion Place of Honour on my sewing table ever since. My children were aghast with my choice when I brought him home - they had the silly idea I would go to a sewing store and buy a conventional one!
And here he is!
My son is certain that somewhere in the world is a tiger with a very sore back!
