Welcome to the Pincushion Challenge! I want to thank everyone who stopped by my blog to let me know that they were as interested in making pincushions as I was. As a result of your enthusiam, I decided to go ahead with my little project and it's time for the first monthly challenge. I'm announcing this one a little early since I just couldn't wait until May 1st! And this way it will give everyone a little extra time for pincushion number one. This month's theme is:
So what exactly does this mean? Well, you can make a pincushion in the shape of a fruit, or use some fruit fabric, or embellish it with some embroidered fruit -- maybe you have a totally different idea. The more creative, the better!
When you have finished your pincushion, please email me a photo of your completed pincushion by the end of the month - May 31st for this first challenge. I will create a photo gallery which I will attempt to have uploaded by the first of the following month -- June 1st in this case.
I have some ideas to get you started up in the right hand sidebar and I'll be adding more! Feel free to email me links to tutorials that you find on the web. I'll look through everything and try to list the tutorials with the best instructions.
I can't wait to see what you all come up with! Happy Crafting!
