In between rounds of the FLiQS the hosts have decided to have a quick pincushion swap, FLiPS. I really was at a lost on what to make, couldn't make a decision until this past week. I kept seeing Heather Bailey's little turtle pincushion pattern and wanted to make one. At first I was going to use some red Kaffe Fassett fabrics accented with some golds but then my partner made a comment that they liked purple and green together. Ah ha! I have plenty of those in the stash. Out came three pretty batiks and a bright green fairy frost for a bit of an accent.
She looked a bit lonely all by her lonesome so I also made a coordinating thread-catcher so that together they'd be the perfect sewing set. I found the thread-catcher tutorial here.
It was a fun package to put together and a nice quick project to work on in between some bigger items on my to-do list. Now it's time to attack the house chores - gotta get the laundry done soon.
