This week we had the four contestants compete against one another in making a unique and original pincushion. The pincushions had to contain fabric from a jelly roll, a button, and ric rac. Here are the submission from our four contestants…

Lorelei – A Mermaid Pincushion by Twee ✁cut to pieces
My entry for the Moda Slice Competition : Pincushion Challenge.
She is made with a Bella White Jelly Roll strip for the head, body and arms. Her tail is from the line “peas and carrots” by Sandy Klop. She has rick trim at her waist for scales and rick rack throughout her hair. Her hair also contains various yarns. A red beaded necklace around her neck and two star buttons to hold everything just so.
Platter Pin Cushion by lovefrombeth
I designed it to sit in that space ‘to the right of your machine’ that always ends up a mess of pins and sewing bits. To me ‘pins’ also means ‘clips’ as I use these just as much in the pinning process. Also I think my Prym magnetic pin cushion is one of the best sewing accessories I have! So I wanted to incorporate these things to make it useful and all things pinny!
The cushion uses 7 strips of ‘Good Fortune’ jelly roll by Kate Spain along with heavy fusible interfacing and some extra heavy weight interfacing to give structure to the compartments and sides. I promise it is easier to make than it looks as all the pattern pieces are prepared and interfacing added at the same time. It is predominantly hand sewn so a good project for a comfy seat and a coffee.
Although the compartments fit a Prym pin cushion you can of course use them for bobbins, reels, machine feet, anything that you want at hand when sewing. There is also a small needle case and strap for a seam ripper.
Which one is your favorite?
