A Homemade Christmas at SimplyVintagegirl.com

Welcome to the eighth A Homemade Christmas! This is week Eight of Ten (you don’t have to enter in each one). I hope you’ll join us in sharing about homemade gifts that you have received or made — past, present, and future!
You can click here for the Introductory post.

Pincushions are practical and the perfect place to store any stray pins.

This pillow pincushion is simple, yet quite lighthearted and cheery. This is the front, with a patchwork of four colorful fabrics.

The back of the cushion with a pink button for extra beauty.

The finished size of the cushion is 4.25″ x 3.75″. A pretty pincushion would be such a nice treat for anyone!

Have you made or received any homemade gifts? If you’d like to make a post about your homemade gifts, you can sign Mr. Linky below. You can add one of my Homemade Christmas icons to your blog by clicking here. Each Thursday (until the end of December) there will be A Homemade Christmas post! Hope you’ll join in the fun as we learn, inspire, and encourage one another!

    Ooo! It’s so pretty! I love how you offset the squares so they aren’t all lined up straight and uniform (like a four square patchwork piece). Great job! I will have to try these sometime!

    Those pincushins are adorable!

    I changed the link on my blog to correct one – sorry about that! :)

    Very cute, what do you fill it with? Stuffing? We have plenty of scraps to make these, but not sure what to fill it with. ; )

    Hey Emily! Nice hearing from you again! I got your note. :) That’s fine if you just want only *one* email update! lol.

    This is a very cute gift for a seamstress. We have lots of odds and ends of fabrics around here. This would fun to make. :) Beautiful colour choices, Miss Emily!

    How have you all been? We’ve been the same. :)

    Love and blessings to you! Give your sis and Maggie a hug for me. And your momma.

    Hey there again!
    Saw your comment. Glad you stopped by!

    We’ve been fine too… just the usual. Been busy with blogging, barn chores, (Wilbur for the main part), and just the usual stuff.

    I really love the pin cushion. I got a pattern for a tote bag that I am going to make… Not sure if I can do it! lol. I’m not handy with a sewing machine. I guess I will let momma do that part of it!

    Hi Emily!
    Those pincushions are sooo cute! I think I might have to make myself one. I don’t really have any pins of my own, but it would be nice to have if I ever get some.
    I really like seeing the things you make! I wish you were doing more than 10… Recently I’ve made a few cards with removable buttons. They are sooo cute! If you’d like to see mine/find out how, just let me know!

    That is so cute! I love to sew and have a dream I am trying to fulfull of creating my own patterns of medieval, celtic and prairie dresses. I can never find these type that are not cheesy and cheap made.

    Hi Emily Rose!

    In Christ,

    My mom recently told me she needed a new pincushion, so I’ll use these directions to make one for her! Thanks so much! Now I don’t have to waste money on the ones in the stores. And homemade is a much better gift anyway! God bless!
