Anyone who sews needs a pincushion; it is an essential part of the kit, so they make great gifts for people who sew. They are easy to make with only basic sewing skills and can be shaped into practically anything. They are small enough to be made from recycled fabrics or offcuts, and can be embellished with buttons, beads, ribbons or lace. Salli-Ann Cook shows her flair for making funny, cute, vintage, whimsical or weird objects from fabric, in these twenty desirable pincushion projects. All the techniques needed are shown in a mini-project and they include transferring the design, using fusible web, cutting out, applying decorative effects, sewing together, stuffing and closing. Projects include a mini monster, Union Jack pillow, cup cake, Christmas pudding, Halloween pumpkin, fried egg, voodoo doll, flat cat, wristwatch, magician's hat and heart. These brilliant pincushions will brighten up any sewing box or bag. All patterns and templates are included.
