I don’t know why I keep making pincushions as I already have more than can possibly be used in my lifetime, much like all the aprons I’ve made. But Indygo Junction’s Vintage Pincushions pattern looked like fun, so I gave it a whirl. The pattern comes with two free vintage artwork images that you download via a special link they provide.
Some star-print fabric works fine for the backing.
The other image design I have is “Forget-me-Not” which will be made later as I’m still pondering what backing fabric to use. Then I need to practice restraint and any future pincushions will be for gifts instead of joining my personal collection.
Speaking of stars, at the beginning of each month I download a free map of the evening sky and calendar so we don’t miss any celestial happenings. This link will take you to Skymaps' download site where you can find the applicable map for your hemisphere, be it northern or southern. This is a great summer activity whether you have children or not.
