Pincushion!

I took the scraps and selvages leftover from my table runner and made a cute little pincushion out of them:

It was my first time sewing selvages, and apparently I didn't overlap some of them far enough, as some came loose when I stuffed it. Oh well, just an excuse to make a second one, right!?
The first one measures about 5in square, and the second one a little smaller at 4in. I stuffed them with polyester fiber fill, because that's what I had. They're a little lightweight, but I like them. :)

I need to make some pin cushions...but I don't have anything to stuff them with!

Like the new blog look too. :)
