However I have been meaning to make myself a wrist pin cushion for a long time. I actually bought this pattern - the Rose Pincushion Cuff by Michelle Patterns - ages ago and then never got round to making it.
However, I was spurred on the other day after I read this article about a woman that inhaled a pin into her lung after holding it in her mouth - something I do all the time (putting pins in my mouth, not inhaling them, thankfully!).
I dug out my pattern, found some fabric scraps and set to work. Here's my version:
I'm pleased with it, but I have to say it was fiddly. I think that's why I don't enjoy "crafty" sewing as much as dressmaking. Each petal is stuffed with soft toy stuffing, then sandwiched between front and back pieces which form a base, stitched around, and turned out (that was difficult!) and then the base is also stuffed.
Stitching the rose onto the wrist band wasn't the easiest thing I've ever done either.
I'm pleased with how my rose turned out - it's difficult to tell until it's finished whether you've used enough stuffing or too much. This is actually my second attempt, the first one was unevenly stuffed and I'd positioned the top layer of petals too close to the edge of the circle.
I'm hoping it will help me stop putting pins in my mouth, but I don't think I'll be making another one.
