A few small projects....

Hi everyone, I hope you are all well. I was off yesterday and made a few things. The first thing I made was a pincushion for the Pincushion Pass Swap. I can't show the whole thing so that my partner is still surprised. So here's a peak:
Then I made another pincushion for the scrappy pincushion swap. This one is a secret swap so I can show you. I hope my partner likes it. This is my first time making a pincushion out of felt.

I also decided to make a little gathered clutch as a teacher gift. I used Noodlehead's tutorial. I love this little pouch. I still need to make another one for another teacher. But I think I will be making several of these as gifts. They are so cute. I love them.
Well, I hope you like my little projects. I have to work night shift the next three days. So I'm not sure how much sewing I'll be doing. I am working on hand quilting one of my Schnibbles quilts. Hopefully I can get quite a bit of that done.

Hugs

Oh how cute everything is---great jobs on it all--I will have to check out that pouch lesson--I need to make some Christmas gifts and they look like they are easy to make--but then is anything with a "zipper" easy?????

You were busy yesterday!! Love that cute little mushroom pincushion and I'm sure your partner will too. Your clutch turned out lovely too. I have bookmarked that tutorial to make one as well.
