Ladies Night

There hasn’t been a whole lot of sewing going on around here but I have been able to squeak out one little project.

I bought a fat quarter of Cotton and Steels “Ladies Night Metallic” from their black and white collection. I was a bit surprised at how small the ladies faces were when the fabric arrived but it is hard to determine scale when shopping online.


I had some fussy cutting in mind for the material and settled on the Prettified Pincushion project in Ayumi Takahashi’s book “Patchwork Please”.


I used “Clover” from the same fabric collection for the side panels. The fabric in between the wedges and on the bottom are both from my local fabric shop.


I enjoyed making this pincushion and will probably keep on the lookout for more fussy cutting opportunities !  The little fabric covered button was a first for me and a little spot of glue on the metal cover really helped hold the fabric in place while I fumbled around getting the backing on.


Thanks for having a look.

I’m linking up with Lorna over at Sew Fresh Quilts for Let’s Bee Social.

    What a great pincushion! I made one of these from the book, and think your fabric was such a perfect choice for this design.
