I was cleaning up my stuffs in drawers and found this kit I bought maybe over twenty years ago. The fabric had a few holes so I made a pincushion using my own similar velveteen. Isn't it a lovely pincushion?
The technique is pin-beading and it reminded me the heart ornaments I saw in the book of Janet Haigh's "Crazy Patchwork". I was so interested in them when I got a book but didn't try to make one then. I thought it's the chance to try to make one now.
I followed the instruction of the book to make this heart but I thought it's no problem to apply the technique more easily. I made those hearts and ornaments from my UFO naked blocks. They would be for charity bazar in future.
