This month's Le Challenge theme is "toffee" and I was determined not to wait for the last minute to finish my project this time. Since I had a jelly roll of Field Study out, I pulled assorted browns and wondered what project to make.
I used a tutorial from The Sewing Chick and made a pin cushion. The tutorial is well written and quite easy. I think it turned out kinda cute and could see myself making more of these as gifts.
For fun, I thought I would show it next to my current pin cushion. It was made by me when I was about 10 years old during a Girl Scout meeting. For some reason, I remember that I really wanted that pink polyester fabric and had to act fast to grab that scrap from the teacher's fabric pile before any other girl. Ha, I didn't realize that I had started developing my fabric hunting skills at such a young age.
Please check out all of the other toffee themed projects this month at Le Challenge. I cant wait to see what next month's theme is, because these really have been challenging!
