pin cushion

I have a sister-in-law who is creative with paper crafts and can do some amazing things with family photos (whereas mine are languishing in the hard drive or shoe boxes). She has recently taken an interest in sewing and stopped by for some pointers on how to get along with her machine. I am, of course, the perfect person to ask as all of my machine meltdowns are met with complete grace and composure. And if your child is in Sunday School with my daughter, I have no idea where she learned that word.
So I wanted to make her a "Welcome to Sewing" gift and decided on a pin cushion. I used the free pattern from this site and included my BFF: a stitch ripper.

I love these buttons and wish I were a better photographer so you could see how they catch the light and sparkle.
