I have been fascinated with quilting since I was a little girl sleeping under a Dutch girl quilt my grandmother made. Now that I?m a grandmother myself, I market my original and whimsical designs under the B. Bumble & Co. name. Most of my patterns are designed for a simple freezer paper applique technique, but will work with any method. They are not complicated and most are easy enough for beginners.
I have a blog at http://buzzingandbumbling.blogspot.com/ where you can keep up with my tutorials, tips, and other postings.
This adorable little pin cushion makes a wonderful gift for anyone who sews or wants pins close at hand. It is very simple to make and can be embellished in many ways. A little pattern for a simple felt glove or sunglasses is included. A bit of lace, a few inches of bead trim, or a snippet of scarf fabric can be sticking out from under the purse flap (which is sewn down).
Although I suggest filling it with crushed walnut shell for weight and firmness, you can use whatever filling you want.
This has been a really good seller that appeals to many ages!
Just about any fabric can be used!
