Pink Pincushion

 Since setting up my new sewing table and arranging my sewing area, I decided I needed a new pincushion.

I had this beautiful fabric, some matching trim

and quite a few buttons.  This fabric looks good with just about every color!

 I cut two pieces out of the fabric:

 These measured 5" x 5".  I allowed for a 1/2" seam allowance on all sides.

Once I sewed these together, I filled it with some poly-fil,  added the ribbon trim and buttons.  I hand stitched down through both the button on top

and the button on the bottom.  You can see that I just folded the raw edge of the ribbon underneath the bottom button and sewed right through it to keep everything in place:

This little pincushion is working out really well and I think it looks great on the sewing table too:
