Needle cushion

I didn’t get much time to sew this past weekend, but I made a few smaller projects, including this brilliant little needle cushion using a tutorial from Shiny Happy World (an excellent site to visit, especially for people who are new to sewing).

I used a wee scrap of fabric from Cloud9 Fabrics (Beyond the Sea collection) for the top and some lovely orange Lizzy House fabric (1001 Peeps collection) for the bottom. Instead of using a credit card (I’m a firm believer in cutting up such things), I used an old student card I had randomly kept.

I love this little project. It’s quick (super quick) and useful. The card inside keeps the needle from going right through. Brilliant

For anyone new to sewing or interested in learning about sewing, I highly recommend visiting Shiny Happy World. Wendy has a tonne of videos (sewing, quilting, and embroidery) and great beginner projects (both in her shop and for free).
