Wool Crazy Pincushion Free Tutorial By Kaaren Johnston of The Painted Quilt

I just love working with wool or wool felt.  And, I also LOVE pincushions. If you do, too then you'll be happy to know that Kaaren Johnston has a wonderful tutorial on her The Painted Quilt blog showing you how to make a wool crazy pincushion.  I just LOVE it.

Here's what Kaaren had to say about her tutorial: At the outset, let me say that all the wool that I used came from scraps that I have saved over the years. Whenever I work with wool, I save all the bits and pieces and store them by color in separate zip lock bags. When I’m working on a project that requires small pieces of wool in a specific color, I just reach into the plastic bin that holds all my baggies of scrap wool and pull out the appropriate bag.

If for whatever reason you don’t have any wool or you might be allergic to wool (perish the thought), you can also make this pincushion in the exact same way that I am about to show you using fabric. The instructions are identical.

Kaaren's Bio: I am an artist and have recently retired from actively designing, publishing and travel teaching in the decorative painting industry. A short while later, in December of 2010, we moved from Eastern Ontario to the beautiful Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia. Quilting, stitching, applique and most recently rug hooking have become my new passions. Oh, and did I mention that I love to make and collect pincushions and needlecases! Join me on the First Friday of every month when I release a new Freebie design for you to make and enjoy.
