Weekend Project Wednesday | November 13th

Happy Wednesday! Today's feature brings you a project that you can easily complete in a weekend AND will be useful for many more sewing weekends.

Sit & Stitch Pincushion by Cindy Taylor Oates

Cindy Taylor Oates' Sit & Stitch Pincushion is the perfect way to organize your sewing essentials while away from your machine. Her over-the-arm organizer will keep your needles, thread, scissors and pins all within arm's reach while you work on your hand sewing or embroidery.

Using just three Fat Quarters, you'll be able to whip up a Sit & Stitch Pincushion in no time! And with the wide variety of Fat Quarter Sets we offer, you can easily match it to your decor. One collection in particular that would work beautifully with this pattern is Michael Miller Groovy.

Michael Miller Fabrics combines the trendy color combo of aqua and red with retro flowers and zig zags to create a fun, eye-catching collection.

Order a Michael Miller Groovy Fat Quarter Set, and you'll be able to make one pincushion for you and one for a friend. With the colder weather we're experiencing now, a quiet evening stitching in front of the fireplace sounds so wonderful!

This was just one example of the fabrics that can be used for your Sit & Stitch Pincushion. What colors predominate your decor? Which fabric collection matches your home the best? Comment and let us know!
