This is my first finished item I made with a sewing machine :). I wanted my own pincushion, so I was like “hey, why not?” So I found some old fabric that I liked, and threw it together, and I actually found a how-to on Burda for the flower on top. It looked really plain without the flower. I did this when I was about 1/3 of the way done with sewing the blocks together for my quilt.
I used scrap fabric, 3 buttons, and some blue thread. I used fiberfil for the stuffing.
