SMS GIveaway- Pincushion



<<<<Giveaway now closed. Thank you to everyone who entered. It was a difficult decision as to where to send my airplane pincusion but in the end, randomness prevailed and Hueisei of Love It, Sew It. . . won the big drawing.>>>>

I see a lot of other sew-ers adding their Zakka style creations to the giveaway.   Since my day job dumped a few more hours on me than is possible in a given day, my giveaway needed to be something I had already made.

Please take a moment, --tie a string around your finger, --enter it into your Smart Phone - to remember to THANK SewMamaSew for facilitating all of the wonderful giveaways.

So I give you the Zakka Pincushion with a little airplane flair and because I couldn't imagine using it as a pincushion, I filled it with some fresh smelling lavender.
It is a dual-use Pincushion/Sachet.





Everybody is invited to post a comment on how long you have been sewing.
I will ship internationally.
Giveaway will end when I literally stumble home from work Friday night (25th) and turn on the laptop.
Please make sure your email is somewhere.

My first giveaway for some vintage sewing supplies is here.

  1. This is a very sweet little pin cushion. I absolutely love it. The little airplane stamp and the bunnies are adorable. Very nice work.

    I have been sewing forever... although not long enough for the bunnies on the first go-round!

  5. Very cute pincushion. I've been sewing for as long as I can remember. This is what being raised by a textile teacher does for you.

  6. I never get around to making me pin cushion, so I still scatter them all over everytime I use them. So a lavendar smelling one would be even more welcome. Thanks for the chance!

  7. What a great pincushion. I love that you put lavendar in it - what a smartie :)

    I've been sewing for about a year now and tend to be drawn to accessories. Last Xmas was a handmade affair - hahaha.

I have a degree in fine arts and sculpture because I love working with different materials, especially textiles!! Sewing and quilting combines 'art' with 'technique' so I LOVE it!!

  27. I've been sewing since I was about 8 so about 10 years? But it's off and on so that's probably not exact. I love the bunny pincushion; bunnies were my favorite animal when I was little! what's the fabric pattern?

  34. OMGosh!! This is way too sweet and adorable. I love the airplanes theme. And as a bunny owner, I have a profound appreciation for the backing fabric.

  35. I am exhausted just from reading about your exhausting day job... I hope your days will soon be a bit more relaxing soon -- especially since summer should have at least a couple of happy, carefree hours!

    Anyway, thanks for the chance to win this adorable pin cushion with the extra plus of sweet fragrance. You made something really lovely -- that plane design is very neat. I like the idea of a theme for such a project -- thanks for the inspiration, too.

    Take good care and have great summer days!!!

    Greetings from Germany,

  44. Your airplane cushion is so sweet! I learned to sew by hand as a little girl with direction from my Nana. But, I only ever made doll clothes. I learned to sew "for real" 13 years ago when my mom was going to give away her 1974 Singer and I thought I'd give it a try. Now I'm hooked.

  50. This is one of the cutest items being given away! I must buy the Zakka book. I have been sewing about two years now - I mostly quilt, but lately I've tried a shirt for myself, some toddler dresses, some zipper bags and a few other items. No pincushions yet. :-)
