I really need to get back to sewing. Christmas is coming, and I have a few projects to finish off. A snow day would be just the thing to help that along! In the meantime, I tried to motivate myself for Christmas sewing by making a seasonal pin cushion. It's very basic, very "rough" (i.e. I did not take my time on it!), but very functional. :)
Sew three different triangle sections -- layering felt, backing, batting, and stuffing.
Stitch the three triangles together, leaving the bottom open.
Add a star on top, pins, and slip it over an old spool.
