Happy Wednesday!
Today, i would like to share a cute Pincushion Tutorial.
I call it “Looking Out”…
Mr S says is a cheesy name and makes no sense.. >_<”
Anyway, i find it rather cute! and just in case, i shall briefly explain..
It shows a window frame and looking out, it is actually raining.
So does “Looking Out” make sense to you? ^^
I still have some leftover fabric from my Cherry Christmas.
I’m going to make another “Looking Out” and this time it will be a snowing one!
This is sooo addictive! hee!
