I loved all of her cushions, but I fell in love with her peacock version. I was even more excited because she offered a kit so I could make my own!

Construction was pretty fast and the directions were clear. The only part I got a bit confused on was sewing the cushion all together. The instructions said to use a running stitch, but I couldn't figure out how that would be really secure. So I did a whip stitch instead.
I think Pete the Peacock (I'm compelled to name everything, hehe!) came out adorable!

Then I was thinking a wrist pincushion would be nice. The lovely Cupcake Goddess of A Fashionable Stitch had been hinting about a new product in her shop, a wearable notion. I was really hoping it was going to be wrist pincushions and it was!!! They appeared in her shop today! I purchased her beautiful "Summer" version, which is actually the one (or a similar one) on her wrist in the pictures in her post.

I can not wait to use it, especially when I'm tracing my patterns and making fit adjustments. I will be using it while making my Beignet skirt, which is all cut out and waiting for me to get some time to start sewing!
