Today I made a skinny little pincushion that ties onto my sewing machine, based on this. I'm a pin-ner so it seemed like a pretty good idea. The fabric is a polka dot scrap and the ties are cloth handles from Anthropologie bags. The 1974 Viking sewing machine was a gift from my parents when I was 21. They gave one to each of us girls in the family but I think I'm the only one to still have mine. It's been taken apart and reassembled twice, that's how much I love it. The first time it was dismantled, the repairman kept procrastinating putting it back together. I called every week, a few months went by. Finally my husband went to the shop and sat down and said he would wait. And the guy put it back together again right then and there. I found a new place to take it after that.
Thanks for visiting. And have some very happy weekending. xx
