Wrist Pin Cushion

Just for fun I made this wrist pin cushion. The basis for the wristband is Grungeboard.
You can buy it in sheets without any pre-made cut-outs in them.

I painted it on both sides, then stenciled the polka dots on. I made holes in each end with an aul and secured this cute little button snap. Since I use wool felt in my work, I just happen to have alot of scraps. So I cut them into strips and rolled them up, like roses. I secured them with a few stitches of embroidery thread and then sewed them to the Grungeboard. It is perfect for hand sewing - pins and needles always with me as I go from room-to-room in my studio. And the Grungeboard protects my wrist from being stabbed by a pin!

    Cute, Jamie, really cute! I'm afraid it wouldn't do, though, in Kenya heat, now about 95 degrees F. I've resorted to pinning a small plastic packaging dish directly to my design wall. It holds pins there at my fingertips without getting in the way - at least not until I work on a big quilt, and then I'll have to improvise again. In the meantime, the odd cold shower helps a lot! ;-)

  2. I might even wear one like that, it's wonderful...
