new binding buddy

i remember these little pincushions from 'vintage' years. i've been looking for a pattern for a while and knew that blogland would be my most valuable resource.

i wasn't disappointed- penny over at Penny's Hand was my saving grace! she posted a great tutorial on how she made one. i immediately went to The Stash and picked some of my favorite scraps.

you know me, i had to make a few changes. i knew it was big, and i didn't want it that big, so i used 1.5" hexies. it's the perfect size to use when i hand stitch down binding. disappearing purple glue sticks are great for this sorta thing!


  1. Very Cute.
    I love the disappearing purple glue sticks, I took them from my daughter 2 years ago, and have been doing the same ever since. They are great when you don't have fusible web.
