Everyday is a great day when you spend it doing something you love!

Pincushions are so fun!  Don’t you think?  They take minimal fabric and supplies and go together quickly and make great gifts.

I used my small butterfly die from the GO! Qube Specialty Set-Serendipity by Edyta Sitar. I applied Ultra Lite Heat and Bond to my fabric BEFORE I cut out the butterfly.  It makes a crisp cut.

I used a simple zig zag stitch to attach to the 5 inch background. I added batting to the back of the appliqué, but I didn’t quilt it.  I wish I had.

I filled the pincushions with ground nut shells.  I like the weight and the scent of PlumEasy shells from Amazon.
