Vintage Button Card Pincushions

Good Thursday Morning to you!!
I am excited to share my second project I made for my Design Team debut
this month with "Crafty Secrets"



If you have read my profile, you will know I also have a love for sewing....
though I don't do nearly enough of it anymore as my paper crafting has taken over....
However, being on the Crafty Secrets team, allows me to squeeze in a bit of sewing 
projects once in awhile, as their digital images are perfect to print on fabric sheets,
which is what I did for this cute little project.

To make my cute little pincushions,
I used Printable Button Cards T-13 images which "I" printed on fabric sheets
that load into your printer with ease and print beautifully, as you can see....
The fabric sheets can be purchased at pretty much any craft store and even Walmart...
Look for them in the sewing sections!!  However, Crafty Secrets has some wonderful,
already pre-printed on "fabric sheets" to save you lots of time!!


This was a super easy and fun project and you can get as creative
 and as fancy with them as
you want, just depending on "your style".....
You could add lace, beads, ribbons, charms, anything to create your own pincushions....
These would make a cute little gift for a friend, teacher, or a quilter.....


I hope you have enjoyed my pincushions today as much as I have enjoyed sharing them with you!!

Wow. What a creative idea! Your pin cushions are as cute and pretty as can be. I had no idea you could print digi's on fabric. Thanks, for the tip.
