I have somewhat successfully completed the construction of a giant pincushion. I knew it would be large, but I was still surprised. In the picture below, I set a pen beside it so you can see the sheer enormity.
It’s not anywhere near as cute as the original, but at least you can tell what it is!
What did I learn this time?
1. Sewing in a circle is hard. I’m not sure how they got the top of the one pictured to be so flat. However, I do think photography skills can help.
2. I have a terrible problem with not thinking through things before I do them…seam ripper anyone?
3. I learned how to hand-sew. Well, I at least hand-sewed. Peta satelit dunia . I’m not sure if I even approached a proper method.
That’s all for now. Hopefully I’ll come up with a new project soon. If you want to make your own giant pincushion, see http://www.bhg.com/crafts/sewing/projects/wild-flower-pincushion/.
