Giveaway Day: A Katie Pincushion

This will be my first time participating in Sew Mama Sew's Giveaway Day. I've been quilting and sewing for years now and love all hand stitching. Sometimes I can't help myself by adding that extra bit of love. So I spent more than a few hours making some special for you.

GiveAwayDay


This item is a pincushion made from one of my favorite lines called Katie Jump Rope and is made by a favorite technique. The 1/2 inch hexagons are carefully hand appliqued to 100% linen. The pincushion doesn't have any special fillers and measures about 5 inch square. It reminds me of my Single Girl, which is in the process of being hand quilted. As soon as I make this pincushion design I seem to be giving them away. I hope I can give it to someone who loves it as much as I do.



My question for you, to be answered in your comment, is, "What is your favorite sewing or quilting project that you have finished this year?"


If you leave a link of your special project, I will check it out.  No need to follow to win, but I will be sure to look you up. Check my WIPs or Finished Projects if you would like to decide to come on by again.

Please make sure you are not a no-reply blogger and I encourage any other bloggers other than blogspot to leave email information so I may contact you.

Thanks and enjoy the week perusing the many blogs linked at Sew Mama Sew.

  2. Such an awesome pincushion, Kristen! Your work is excellent! Although I've never owned any of it, Katie Jump Rope is one of my very favorite lines. I think that my most favorite thing I made this year was my Kaleidoscope quilt for my best friend. http://hoosiertoni.blogspot.com/2011/10/carries-kaleidoscope.html

    Thanks for such a great giveaway!

  3. That is such an adorable pin cushion! The handstitching adds so much personality. My favorite project from this past year is one that's still in process due to the fact it has lots of handstitching: http://lifeontheselvageedge.blogspot.com/2011/11/time-for-background-audition.html (Would have been done by now, but had a mile long list of Christmas presents that needed to be made!)

Being rather fond of hexagons, I was delighted to see the look of your little pincushion ... just last night, I was thinking what a fun Christmas ornament that same design would make ... a tiny hexagon flower on a square, sewn up into a little square ornament.

  87. What an absolutely gorgeous pincushion. Being a nerdy crafter I am partial to hexagonal shapes :) And off course one can never have too many pincushions - one for every project is about right.

    My favourite thing I sewed up this year was an Ipad pouch for my hubby. It was quite a plain pouch, but I tried some basic quilting on it and it looks great. Best of all though? He's actually using it - whoop!

    Thank you for a great giveaway :)

I usually just use the clothes I'm wearing, which can be a bit problematic if I have to hug someone or pick up the cat!
