Small Wonder PIN BLOSSOM
Thursday the young gals (I am the oldest) are meeting again at my home to do the one hour totes below, so I decided to have a surprise for them. I decided to make the pin cushion so I could show them how and have it all cut out for them and ready for them to sew. The instructions had you sewing each petal seperately and then sewing them together...hummmm my fingers were twisting this way and that. I was frustrated and knew these gals would be since a few are beginner sewers. I finally got it all together and the bottom looked horrible. I said to myself "there has to be a better way" and there was...sew the bottom together (just like you would in quilting when making a star) then sew the top together and then connect them to the bottom....how awesome is that? So much easier for these young ladies.
If any of you have any projects that would be ideal for this group of gals, would you let me know....I might be running out soon!!
