In case you’re not caught up, I received a sewing machine from Matt for the holidays. Yes, I had been thinking about getting one, but didn’t know how serious I was. As soon as I opened the box, I already knew where my work station was going to be and had a drawer cleared out for materials (which are currently all over everywhere but in the drawer). I even read the manual on a recent airplane flight (partly because the machine is fancy and partly because it’s been a long time since I made my own hair scrunchies).
I decided my first project would be to make a pin cushion, just like it was the first project in 8th grade Home Economics class. On Pinterest I had seen a link to this one that I thought was so smart, so I set out to make my own. See the tutorial here.
Here it is…
…and here it is set up on my machine
You can see I made the strap out of elastic instead of ribbon; I just felt that it would be sturdier, although perhaps not as pretty. It’s also moveable so it can be placed in the most convenient location (or removed altogether).
