The Sweet Things in Life

 

 

As February approaches, stores tempt you with a red and pink bonanza of Valentine greetings–cards, candy, gifts and flowers.  Where do you look if you want a special Valentine treat for a friend who appreciates your creative talents?  Just Another Button Company has lots of ideas, and here’s a great one!

This is a special Valentine gift for YOU from Just Another Button Company–free instructions for Sweet Treat, a quick-and-easy pincushion in an ice cream cup.  You eat the ice cream first–tough job, but someone’s got to do it!  Roll strips of wool to fill the cup then top with our Just Pins.  A stitch here and there helps hold the layers together as you roll, but you could actually make this pincushion with no sewing if you want.

Now you can make a Sweet Treat for all the names on your Valentine list.  Look for JABC Just Pins and Weeks Dye Works felted wool in independent quilt and needlework stores!  We have lots of Just Pins–if you are inspired to create more flavors.  See more Just Pins on our website.

Will you make the pincushions from beloved materials in your stash or search out the fabrics and pins we used?

Our favorite Weeks Dye Works felted wool is available in fat quarter cuts at independent quilt and needlework stores.   If you are a “kit” person, you’ll be happy to hear that Just Another Button Company will offer wool and fabric kits for the pincushions in the book.  Look for item #f705 for the wool pieces you need for the aqua Santa pincushion.  And don’t forget you can also order e705–the embellishment pack that includes the two JABC Just Pins shown on the Santa.
