Previews and Reviews

Some of you have asked me for the pattern of my pincushions and so I’ve decided to make my first tutorial ever. Last week-end I’ve made this pincushion and took step-by-step-pictures:

I still need to write down some instructions, but I hope I can post the Sunny Pincushion Tutorial this week-end. (I love it, when people name their projects!) :)

The last few days, I’ve been quite busy with the Tutorial and the Baby Blanket (oh, and sometimes my job intervenes as well), so there’s nothing new I can show you. But – I’ve still got pictures of stuff I made before I started blogging.
Here are pictures of two cans I’ve covered. The first one is from IKEA and when I bought it, I thought it would look nice with a belt of granny squares around. It does, don’t you think?

The next one is an empty body lotion can that I found somewhere in the depth of our bathroom cabinet. Again, it’s embellished with buttons and beads – I just can’t let go :)

But now I have to let go of this post – the job’s intervening again…

Hope to see you soon here in k-town,



  1. Liebe Barbara,

    ganz tolle Fotos sind das wieder, Du wohnst wirklich traumhaft schön...und ich freue mich schon total auf Deine erste Anleitung!

    Die umhäkelte Lotion sieht wirklich sagenhaft aus mit den Perlen und dem süßen Knopf...alle Achtung, ganz tolle Arbeiten zeigst Du uns hier und ich freue mich echt immer riesig auf den Besuch hier.

    Hab noch einen schönen Abend und sei ganz lieb gegrüßt,

  3. Pretty pincushion. The button detail just makes it!

  4. Thank you all for your lovely comments!
    Marion, du machst mich ganz verlegen mit deinen überschwenglichen Worten - vielen, vielen Dank! :)
