One morning over the weekend, I just felt the need to be creative. It didn’t have to be anything major, but I just needed to get the creative juices flowing.
I had some pin toppers I bought a while back for my daughter off of etsy. The seller’s name is GigiMinor. They come on these great little cards with delightful names, all packaged up nicely. I decided they’d make an even cuter gift if they were on an adorable pin cushion, so I set to work.
Started cutting and sewing, pulling pinks and reds from my scrap bag, and came up with this, before trimming:
Auditioned a few backings and decided on this one.
Sewed it all together, stuffed it and added the pin toppers. I think it’s kind of cute!
It does look like a Valentine, but I can get away with that because I was born on February 14. I have a thing for Valentines.
I just love these pin toppers. I want them all! Silly little pretty things! I guess quilters in general like this kind of doodad.
