12 Days of Christmas Swap

Today is the day that participants will open my little giftie! It's a pin cushion!
I made several pin cushions over the course of two or three days -- sometimes it's fun to crank out a fun little sewing assembly-line project. The participants are crafty bloggers of all types, not necessarily quilters, but who doesn't need a pin cushion now and then? Especially if it's cute!
I was inspired by this pin cushion that's been on my "crafty inspiration" board on Pinterest for quite some time. I originally envisioned some kind of woven wool for the top, but I really wanted to use something I had on hand -- denim! I choose three different quilty prints for the bottom of the pin cushions and made coordinating felt rosettes as a decoration on the top. The rosette's are made using Betz White's genius tutorial. (I made them with regular craft felt and slightly smaller.) They all have a coordinating ribbon loops and three little matching pins.

The first two gifts were delightful. Lorelei's been blogging about them. A lovely way to continue the celebration of this blessed season.

Hi Deborah,

I opened my little gift from you this morning. So cute! I've been blogging about this exchange too. And I'm going to give away one of my gifties (day 9) to a lucky reader.

Isn't this exchange fun?!
