ATC on the left made for a swap.I made this so long ago I forget what the back ground is. I made a swap as soon as I sign up and then package it and mark what it is. So sometime I forget. Recollections rose with some of their bling was used. String pearls some hearts I cut from some pattern paper. Lace down the left side and a pink heart stick pin I made. Pin cushion packaged up and ready to go. Has been sent since this was taken :)This is my first pin cushion (not counting the one I made in home ec 7th grade). And that was a very loooooooong time ago lol. Did not have a clue what I was going to make when I sat down to do this. I cut one piece of material, did not like that, then cut the red and white checked (my fav) hope my partner likes that color too. Emptied out a tin I store some bling in hot glued some glass bubbles, stuffed the material and hot glued it down. The lace I got in a swap, was too wide so I cut in in half and glued it on. Looked around seen the red buttons they were added next. It looked ok , but I felt there was something missing. Picked up a box to start making the stick pins and seen the mini spools I got not to long ago in a swap. What they were doing in my bead box, who knows! Any way the made their way on the pin cushion. I made 3 red and white stick pins for it. And that's it. I still have the one I made in 7th grade. Maybe some time today I will do a follow up post on it and show a pic. LOL pin cushions have come a long way! All for now thanks for looking and come back soon
