Lila Tueller, who I mention here quite a bit (the designer of the fabric I used in my patchwork bag and the designer of the pattern I altered for the diaper bag) has posted a free pattern on her blog. For a limited time you can download the instructions for some truly adorable mushroom pincushions with some unique embellishments.
By pure coincidence, the Patches and Pieces blog is giving away a honey bun (1 1/2 inch pre-cut strips) of Lila Tueller's Soiree line for Moda. I looked around online the other day and found that you can do a lot more with 1 1/2 inch strips than I thought.
So, go download Lila's pattern and visit Patches and Pieces blog for a chance to win some of her fabric...and pretend I actually went down in my sewing room and made a cute little mushroom to show you. Honestly, I started, but I got some big news today that ensures my future will be filled with packing and boxes and a multitude of posts on craigslist. We did not get the house we excitedly took down the info of the day of the infamous gas leak, but we did get another house. A smaller house, but with a better floor plan and I am so excited to de-clutter (and de-neighbor) my life!
