sew & tell v. 1.0.7 - cupcake pincushion edition

Yesterday while I was looking for my muffin tin papers I came across these little beauties that I bought in the dollar bin at Target last fall!


Silicone baking cups!  I bought them with the intent to make pincushions.  I thought to myself, "Self, you still haven't made anything for tomorrow's sew & tell - you could whip one of these up!"


So I did.  And only finished 15 minutes ago.  If I had a more cooperative glue gun (or better glue gun skills) it would have been super quick.


Who doesn't love a little ric rac?  I think I've said that before...


There you can see the top a little better.  That's one of Sandi Henderson's Farmer's Market prints.  Love it!  I'm going to have to make myself one now - this one is going to a friend for her birthday.


If you are new here to sew & tell, here are the few short rules:
1. Link to a post about a finish you had this week (don't just link to your blog, please!)

2. Link back to this post so more peeps can join in the fun! If it is a post from earlier in the week, just please add a note about sew & tell . Now that we have a button this is super easy - you can just cut and paste the html from over there on the right sidebar!

3. Enjoy getting motivated and patting each other on the backs in the comments! This is the funnest part about sew & tell - sharing and inspiring!

cute pin cushion! Love glue gun projects - but I haven't used one in a long time!!

Beth said...

AMY! I'm so sorry. I linked the wrong post. So link #7 could be deleted. It was from two weeks ago. I don't think I can do that. I relinked to the right post on #11. I'm so sorry. Let's just say I'm not completely up to date with all this techno stuff!

Beth said...

Love your cupcake pin cushion it is so cute! We were on the same wave length this week - I made a pin cushion as well!

Barb said...

Heather said...

Adorable, Amy! What a fun, quick project. And yes, the rick-rack is the perfect touch. ;o)

Thanks for hosting Sew & Tell Friday. This is my first time joining in, and I look forward to seeing everyone's projects!

So cute! Just so you, ahem, know . . . I have been in the market for a pincushion. I just use the original box.

Dee said...

This is adorable...I've been wanting to make one as a gift and this would be perfect.

This is adorable! I see that a lot of people have finished projects for sew and tell Friday. I guess I better get busy!!!

Sherri said...

Love the cupcakes. You make it look so fun and easy! So many different colours to choose from! Happy Sew and Tell Friday! Have a great week...Sherri : )

Leslie said...

i can not believe how many of us made pincushions this week...we must have all been on the same wavelength or all having the same kind of week. Yours are adorable...i love the fabric you chose.

Laura said...

I did it!!!

Sue said...

These pincushions are adorable!

sewtakeahike said...

cute pin cushion Amy! Love the colors. And I agree. Ric-rac good.

Sarah McK said...

Oh my gosh I love this! I should make some for my quilting-happy mother-in-law and friend! Do you need a sewing machine at all? It looks like you pretty much used fabric, stuffing, and embellishment with a glue gun, but I'm sure there's more to it....

wishes, true and kind said...

Great cupcake, you clever thing! Deliciously pretty!

Mrs Moen said...

Your cupcakes look yummy enough to eat - and no sugar!

Megan Young said...

Um....I love that I was the lucky birthday girl of the adorable pincushion (that I have already put to work) and an adorable group of people who made my day sooo perfect. Your the best!

Elizabeth said...
