First ever ...

This month I am participating in a sponsored sewing swap.  Amy from Amy Made That! hosted a pincushion swap called "Getting Skinny for 2014."  Clever title!!  After submitting my name to Amy, she matched me up with another participant.  Our task is to sew a skinny pincushion using the free tutorial found here.  Completed projects are sent to your sewing partner by the end of February.  Fun.  So.... here was my attempt to "get skinny."  Amy also started a flickr page to showcase the many pincushions made, and for participants to cheer each other on as we go.  This one will be sent off soon to ????? ;)  Who knows -- if you are a participant and reading this -- it may be coming to you!
A Skinny Pinny sits right along the front of your sewing machine, and it quite handy for getting the pins safely pinned as they come off the sewing project.

I couldn't help myself ... and added a matching needle book to go with the "skinny."

We were given hints as to fabric preferences, so I think my swappie will like this.

I made my own simple design for this one.  It is a similar style to many needle books out there.
