Shoe Pincushion!!! ~ FNSI

For the Friday Night Sew In I was going to make some gifts, but then... 
I needed a pincushion. 

This was SO FUN to make!  I found it here at Sew, Mama, Sew.

 

 I've had this shoe fabric for a long time..... wasn't really sure what to do with it.  It was a little too silly for a purse.  I think this was the perfect project!!!
  
Lately, I've been annoyed because I have only one pincushion that I like.  AND I've been missing my pincushion thread catcher.


And I'm always forgetting to bring the pincushion from the cutting table to the sewing table.  

This pincushion is weighted with rice and also has fiberfill.


I loved this design because I will hold all my fun stuff.  I sewed a 'v' so the scissors would sit nicely!


 The thread catcher is DETACHABLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  yay!!!  and I got to use a cute flower button.  =)


It stands on its own!


View from the top.....AND it holds my needles!

I am so happy now! wahoo!

That's great! I love my pincushion thread catcher. Mine doesn't have a place for the scissors. That would be really helpful while I hand quilt. I don't like leaving them on top of the quilt.
