Heather Bailey Fresh Picked Pear/Apple/Strawberry Pin Cushions

One of the designers whose patterns we stock is Heather Bailey.  (Her website is here http://www.heatherbaileystore.com/?Click=25 )  The pin cushion pattern looks particularly fun, so I asked a friends 16 year old daughter if she would make it up and give me her feedback.  To make the ones below, she  used some of our Flower Bucket material (£2.00 a fat quarter) and 30% wool felt which is £1 a sheet.  They were quick to make and, and she said the instructions were good and very easy to follow.  As they are quite small you don’t necessarily need to buy fabric – you can use the scraps you have in your sewing cupboard at home.  As well as being pin cushions they would look pretty in a bowl or make great children’s toys.  The pattern is £10, which works our £2.50 per item.  We have 2 left in stock. 

Don’t they look fab (and don’t you think for a 16 year old she is showing some promising sewing talent – watch out Amy Butler!)
