Tula Pinkushion

When sweet Queen of Bags Sara started the Tula Pink Sewalong I knew I wanted to play, but I also knew that I couldn't commit to a whole quilt.

You may remember that I bought the beautiful Quilts From The House Of Tula Pink as soon as it was released, and I had been toying with a couple of the patterns for my second round of Brit Bee in the new year, but one smaller project immediately sprung to mind for this.

The Lollipops Pillow.

Having just finished my Girl On a Swing and gigantic Spring Carnival only recently, the family and sofas are a little over-cushioned right now, so I figured I should just make something for the one person here who really appreciates my stitchy obsession...me!

So I decided to scale it down and make a pin cushion, a Tula Pinkushion!!!



It's positively glamorous and probably not the most practical, but I don't care, it's got sparkles, covered buttons and a froggy prince.  Did I mention, sparkles!?

There's still time to add your recent TP projects to the flickr group; either using Tula Pink fabric, or a Tula Pink pattern, or both like mine, to be in with the chance of prizes, oh yes.

And this little froggy also marks another tick on my FAL list - hurrah!  Win win x

  1. That's fab, maybe not very practical, but beautiful and funny, and that's more than enough!

    Especially with the frog of my dreams AND sparkles.
    *Very nice* said like Boris Johnson in his recent speech.

  7. Holy wow, that's pretty! It looks like it belongs on a sewing table in magazines…. Very fancy - I'd almost hate to stick pins in it. I'd have to make it a little chair to sit on. :-)
