Scottie Dog Pincushion


I want to share a little pincushion I made.  I talk with my Grandma all the time about sewing.  She's the one who taught me how to quilt!  Anyway, I was telling her about all the awesome applique tricks I learned from this class.  She wanted to see some, so I made her a pincushion!

Grandma and Grandpa have always had schnauzer/poodles and so I thought a scottie dog was the closest to that!   I found it online and traced it onto my handy dandy HeatNBond Lite!!!  =)

I used a fun stitch on my Bernina to make a collar!

Then I just used a blanket stitch around the doggie and the circle.

I filled it with crushed English Walnut Shells which makes it awesome and heavy!

It's he cute???

He's cute! I need to make a pincushion soon, for an exchange. Mine has to be made on a people powered machine, so, no fun stitches.
