Dress Form Pin Cushions

I just LOVE these pin cushions!!! Big thanks to Kim & Kris from @TheDIYdish for this project. I had soo much fun making these, and they went together fairly quickly. 

My favorite part of the pin cushions are the accessories!! I used fun buttons that I had in my stash. Look how cute they turned out! Each one has it's own personality.

I also added little wire ribbon scarves to them (to hide the glue seam where the ornament attaches to the neck).

And yes, I'm actually keeping one of these pin cushions for myself. In fact it's gonna be hard to let the other three leave my studio.

If you make one be sure to watch the tutorial all the way through as Kim and Kris have some great construction tips for each step of the project.  Click here to watch episode. Happy sewing!

PS. Here's one more photo...this photo came out very vintage like so I had to share to it.  :)

About Me

My photo
Welcome to Calico Cali Designs! I’m Kat, digitizer and sewing enthusiast. I learned how to digitize in 2010 from master digitizer Walter Floriani…it was an amazing experience. Soon instead of spending my time sewing, quilting and stitching out other people’s embroidery designs, I was sewing, quilting and stitching out my own embroidery designs. I created this blog, not only as a place to share my embroidery designs, but also as a place to share all the things I make, sew, paint, embroider, and create. You’ll see posts about my life, my studio, patterns I’ve sewn and products I’ve tested. I hope you enjoy reading these posts as much as I’ve enjoyed creating them. Follow me on twitter . Hugs!! – Kat
