Handmade Holiday Day #2 – Poke Corners

Make “Poke Corners”

Want to learn how to give your square pincushions cute boxy corners? We call them “poke corners” because they’re created by poking the corners to the inside. Watch the video below to see how we do it.

Scare·ology!

We were inspired to create a Halloween mini-set of [square.ology], that we’re calling [scare.ology]…aren’t we clever?

We’re always looking for fun new finishing ideas for [square.ology] and we’ve definitely found a good one for Scare.ology! We teamed up with Retromantic Fripperies to make a special thread organizer and box that make these finished pieces to-die-for! The box and the thread organizer are hand painted black with have a rubbed wax finish. The edges are distressed which adds a touch of vintage flavor.

You can finish your stitching just like we did! Start by following our Flat Finish Tutorial to flat finish your stitching. Then attach to the box or the thread organizer with stitchery tape.
