Make a Pretty Pincushion: Video Tutorial & Sew Along!

 
 
Welcome back to the Jolly Jabber, Quilting Friends! Today we're sharing a video tutorial and inspiration for pin cushions! Pin cushions are a handy tool that every quilter and sewist should have on hand.  Not only are they functional - providing a place for your pins and needles to reside - they're just plain fun! They're quick and easy to make, fun to personalize, and make wonderful gifts.  What's not to love?!
 



This video featuring Kimberly Jolly and Sherri McConnell will show you how to make one of these darling pin cushions for yourself. Take a peek and enjoy the show! We've also got a sew along with some of our favorite quilting bloggers, so keep reading and scrolling down for more inspiration and for our participating bloggers list!

The "ribbon" looks like their twill tape from their store. Isn't it cute.
