deluxe pin cushion

Welcome to finish it up Friday!
This morning I made a deluxe pin cushion and I LOVE it so very much! The pattern is in the book Sew Organized for the Busy Girl by Heidi Staples. I have a feeling I will make at least 20 more of these pin cushions. For real!
For this version, I dug into my most precious scraps of Flea Market Fancy and Katie Jump Rope fabric. The sweet floral that I used for the body of the pin cushion is my absolute favorite fabric at the moment...I only had a fat quarter of it, but I used it anyway. I just love it!!!
Before I stuffed the pin cushion, I showed it to my daughter and we thought it would make a good sleeping bag for a small stuffed toy. She pulled out my little My Melody doll and we tried it out. Oh, my goodness!!! We squealed at the cuteness for a good long time. My boys were a little dubious, but they were also half smiling. (I love that!)
 

 
I mean, c'mon! The cuteness! I think I might be 9 years old inside. :) Also, I think I will be sewing up another one for a sleeping bag this afternoon!

Now it's your turn! Please link up your finishes for the week. Thanks for joining me for finish it up Friday! Have a fantastic weekend! xo
