I joined the Scrappy Pincushion Swap at Flickr. The pincushion above was my first creation. To make it, I found a paper piecing block pattern online that I liked and printed it really tiny. I'm not very proficient at foundation paper piecing, so I somehow ended up sewing the points off my star. Edited to add - I just tried again and I know exactly what I did wrong. I squared up the little patchwork pieces before I sewed everything together and I took too much off when I trimmed. I just finished up a second try and it's much better. I'll post it tomorrow. :-)
So, I started on another pincushion. These are half inch hexagons, the smallest I've made so far and super fun to make and assemble. I also love being able to put such tiny scraps to good use and turn them into something awesome!
