OMG! Eela Finished a Project!

Don’t get your panties all in a twist now, it was bound to happen some day. Or was it? Nevertheless here it is! And you know what? I actually remembered to snap a few shots of the process as well: Tadaaa!!

And not only is it the first finished project in a long time, but I challenged myself by hand sewing it. It’s the first time I’ve hand sewed a whole piece of creation as the machine has been my first choice at most times except for repairs.

So it started with me wanting to use some of my many crafting supplies lying around collecting dust while I keep buying ever more to add to it. And taking a look at my plenty of meters of fabric I concluded that taking a little piece for a pin cushion wouldn’t have me shrieking at a later date if I wanted the rest of the fabric for some bigger project. And to make it even more challenging i had to add some lace 😛 It’s no fun if it’s too plain or too easy, right?

Stitching Process

I made my way around my circle patches with your basic back-stitch keeping the lace in between the pieces and was pretty pleased with how even I managed to get the stitches. Then I strengthened the edges using buttonhole stitches as a overlock seam. I prefer using this one, as I feel it’s sturdier and more lasting as well as prettier han the usual overlock seam.

Nom nom

Finishing off with stuffing it full of some of your regular filling material and carefully, and patiently, closing it up it’s ready for use. Voilà! Here is my first ever hand sewed pincushion!
