  13. Dearest Vonna,

    I've read a couple of mattress pincushions tutorial out there but yours is by far the clearest and you make it look so darn easy.

    It's got a 'get off your butt and make one' effect! And I am sure feeling it :D

    Thanks so very much.

    Lovely pincushion and great tutorial!

  21. That looks so easy!! But, two questions for the novice finisher:

    1) What is fusible interfacing and what is it for? (OK, that's 2 q's)

    2) About how long do you think this would take a beginner to do from start to finish?

    Thanks for the help!!

  36. What beautiful photos you take--and the pinkeep is wonderful also. And I got the A Mon Ami Pierre in the newsletter from ABC stitch, and I was sunk also... Sigh. I wonder if it's done in DMC at least.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I'm excited to learn from your tutorial...I need some variety in my finishing!

  38. Hello Vonna,

    What a lovely pinkeep! I discovered your blog some time ago, time to leave a comment! You make such beautiful things, wow.
    Thanks for sharing!

    Greetings, Carolien

  39. Love your tutorials...thanks!

  40. Really great tutorial Vonna. Can I ask why you use the interfacing? I have made several mattress style pincushions and never used interfacing. Also, I stitch four stripes for the sides as I think it makes the corners "sharper" if that makes any sense.

  43. What a fabulous tutorial. I have always wanted to make one of these pillows. Now I will have to stitch something suitable for this technique.

  44. Wohoo! I was wondering how to make these, Vonna! Maybe my BF in quilting and I can try to make one before I ruin a piece of my stitching! Thank you for taking the time to teach us. Love and hugs,
    Deb

  52. Thank you so much for this tutorial, I think its the best one I've seen. I never would have thought of using the fray check, but it makes so much sense now.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Vonna, my friend, you are amazing. I took a look at this tutorial and you've done it in such a manner that I feel that *I* can actually make one of these! That's saying a lot, since I'm pretty much sewing-deprived. :-)

    I've been wanting to make one of these and I figured out the basic idea of it, but your tutorial added in all those little details that I didn't know. I scrolled through you tutorial list and discovered some other gems as well...maybe I'll attempt some of the other finishing techniques now!

    Do you mind if I include a link to your tutorial site on my blog? If you'd rather not, then that's fine, I completely understand. I've bookmarked it on my computer for definite future use!
