Lovebird Pincushion by Yoko, Feltmates

We love the idea of a lovebird for Valentine’s Day! Yoko currently has lovebird pincushions listed in her shop.

You could embroider some lovebirds or applique. You could also modify Melissa’s Be My Bluebird Felt Valentine Tutorial to incorporate some lovebirds. If Yoko’s birds remind you that you need a new pincushion we have lots more inspiration there too!

Comment in any post this week for your chance to win one of these great prizes: Recycled Eco-Felt Bundle from Felt-o-rama; $15 gift certificate to Noah and Lilah; $15 gift certificate to The Pleated Poppy; $15 gift certificate to Sew,Mama,Sew! Take a look at the February “True Love” prize master list to see other great prizes we’ll be giving away this month.

    I recently made my first bowl/cup pincushion in a cut-glass candy bowl, and it turned out so well! The weight of the bowl was a plus, it doubles as a weight for holding down patterns,etc., and it’s definitely not getting lost on the sewing table! I’ve been meaning to make some more, and this inspires me to add to the top of it! Thanks.
