Handmade Pincushion

My pincushion for the swap is done! I finished it yesterday. I used this pattern from Aimee Ray as a starting point, then changed it up slightly. I hope my recipient likes it!

The person I have also mentioned she likes birds, so I am including these little bird post-its and a bird magnet, inside a little drawstring organza bag.

I might make up another quick pincushion with some bird fabric, if I have a chance.

Update March 28:

I did end up making another pincushion, this time using some sweet bird fabric I had. I machine stitched with variegated thread on the bird, paired it with a batik for the back, then stitched up a little pincushion. My swap partner received everything and sent me a nice note saying she loved the pincushions and goodies! Still waiting to get mine– I can’t wait!
