I closed up shop early today so I could do something just for myself - make a Zakka Pincushion! It's part of the Zakka Sew Along hosted by Lindsey over at LR Stitched.
It was great fun to go through my stash and pick and choose for a small project like this. And then, to top it all off, I got to finally do something with the ric rac and cute owl ribbon I've had sitting in a drawer for the longest time.
I didn't have any linen fabric as the instructions called for, so I winged it. The back side has a fun little turquoise green button that looks like a flower. I forgot to take a photo of the backside, so you'll just have to imagine what it looks like.
Need a quick, easy, fun project for the weekend? Instructions are in the book Zakka Style compiled by Rashida Coleman-Hale. And it goes together in a snap!
And guess what? There are prizes! Have you ever seen so many giveaways as out here in quilting blogland? It's all fun. This week the prize is a fat quarter bundle of Monsterz fabric from Cloud 9 Fabrics, which is so cool. If you haven't seen this fabric collection, check it out - it's nothing but fun! Just link up at LR Stitched.
Our weather is finally NICE! I think I'll barbecue something tonight - a tasty salmon perhaps???
