My pin cushion swap package from Natasha at Rickrack and Ribbons arrived and it was filled with wonderful stuff! A sweet little sewing kit, a gorgeous pin cushion, a tiny charm pack (that is on it's way to becoming a great little quilt) and an awesome piece of fabric that was just what I needed to finish a long overdue project, making a cover for Jack's school nap mat.
The animal fabric is perfect! (I was just about to buy some animal fabric from Sew Mama Sew.)
I made the backside in a coordinating gingham print, and used some bias tape for ties. Finally that awkward thing has a tie so I can tie it closed and it won't be flopping all over when I am trying to carry it and Jack and that load of other stuff we have to tote to and from school each Wednesday.
Of course, when Jack saw it he wanted to try it out. Now if only he would actually fall asleep...
