Here are some details about my project:

What materials did you use? When I made my first String Block from Craftsy BOM for March, three of my four pieces were a bit shy of 6 1/2" square so I put them aside and started over. I saved the smaller blocks for another day and look with a little decorative stitching and ricrac - Personalized Pincushion Pillows! Not a mistake but a creative opportunity ;o)

Thank you all - I don't have an embroidery machine yet. I just used my machine's decorative stitches.

did you know that if you use real lambs wool or human hair in a pin cushion the pins will never rust? Lambs wool is my favorite, the natural lanolin keeps the pins rust free.
