It was packed so neatly, with a scrunched up paper pattern instead of styrofoam. (McCalls 8378 if you’re interested.)
My new wrist pin cushion. It goes with my watch!
When I read that The Cupcake Goddess had added wrist pin cushions to her Etsy store I was like a greyhound out of a trap. I LOVE wrist pin cushions. They’re incredibly useful when you’re pinning something tricky and don’t want to chase a pin cushion across the table. But the two I’d had so far had underperformed woefully. These are the little blighters:
The plastic bracelet is so brittle that it snaps even when you gently ease it onto your wrist. The cushion is made out of hard foam that I’m sure blunts pins. I was going to have a go at making my own, but when I saw the beauties that The Cupcake Goddess had created it was a no brainer. I’ve never had my debit card out of my purse so fast!
This pin cushion is lovely in real life. Beautifully made and soooo pretty. I want to wear it out as a fashion accessory, but I think people would look at me oddly.
I’m now the proud owner of three pin cushions:
The heart-shaped one on the left is a handmade gift. The tiny brown one was bought from Liberty right at the start of my sewing career. In an ideal world, I’d have a pin cushion in every room of the house for when I’m wandering from sewing machine to mirror, wailing, ‘Does my bum look big pinned in this?’
How many pin cushions do you own? Can you beat three?
Thank you, Cupcake Goddess!
It goes with my new bag, too!
Okay. Perhaps there can be such a thing as TOO MUCH PINK.
