Spring Pincushion Picks: Cottontail Make-Do and Ornaments
With many of us spending extra time at home right now, it's the perfect time to enjoy stitching projects. One of our favorite spring-themed patterns is Cottontail. Both the simple make-do pincushion and the fun bunny ornaments are a quick stitch and make great use of scraps. And Cottontail is cute as can be!
The Cottontail Make-Do Pincushion pattern is available in both print and pdf download versions. The pattern includes directions and pattern shapes that are easy to transfer to your fabric (see this tutorial for tips). The pattern shapes are the perfect size for using the bits and pieces in your scrap basket.
Would you prefer to order a kit with supplies included?
You'll love the Cottontail Ornament kit! The kit includes the pattern for the bunny face ornament (which can be stuffed or left flat). These cuties are so quick to stitch and would be adorable embellishing a gift or basket. The kit includes supplies to make one bunny face and tail ornament set along with bonus instructions for the bunny body that is shown on the Cottontail Make-Do pattern (supplies for the body are not included in the kit).
Our limited-edition From the Basket Pin-Mini is the perfect pin choice for the Cottontail Make-Do or for pinning your Cottontail Ornament in place. This delightful set features our new Funny Bunny pin along with three hand-dyed polymer clay eggs. Dyeing the eggs creates a slightly speckled finish, just like real dyed eggs. No two are exactly the same!
