I'll be honest, when I first saw this pattern I thought it looked, for lack of a better word, ugly. It's a huge seller and I just couldn't understand it. So, I thought I'd make it to see what all the fuss is about.
I must admit, I was sad to see it go as a sample in our shop. I really wanted to keep it.
A giant pin cushion is always great to have around and the scrap bag attached is brilliant. why don't I have a scrap bag already? I just throw all my scraps in a pile on the floor while I'm cutting, then gather them and put them in their bin what seems like years later.
I'll think I may need to whip up another one of these beauties.
My one suggestion with the pattern is to use upholstery (or heavy) thread for the pincushion when doing the required hand sewing. My thread broke several times and profanities were prevalent. With that one little change, I think the next one will be very pleasant not to mention G-Rated.
I used these fabrics.
