on my hook : pincushion

A week or two ago, I came across a fun YAL (yarn-a-long) on Instagram.  It's being hosted by the lovely Linda at Wild About Yarn.  The theme is flowers (my favorite thing!) and each month she will share a stash-busting crochet project and the pattern to go with.  Please check it out and join us!

January's project was a gorgeous Crochet Granny Pincushion.  I had never thought to fold a granny like a little envelope to create a pillow--genius!

I love how it turned out.  I did already have a cute pincushion, but can you really have too many pretty pincushions?  

 Wouldn't these be the perfect little gift for your sewing friends.  It came together in an afternoon, and   forced me to pull out the old sewing machine and some fabric (to create the cushion insert).

The February project is already posted if you want to hook along!

  2. I absolutely LOVE this adorable little pincushion! What a great idea to use the granny square to make this!

  3. Wow, it's really beautiful, love the colours ♥
