Scrap happy

I love sewing with scraps. Knowing this, my friend Lisa tempted me with the woollen scraps left over from her quilted cushion. There were odd-sized pieces; offcuts from the shapes she cut for her project. From the pieces I scavenged, I made these two pincushions.

I've never stitched woollen fabrics before. These were divine. Simple to machine stitch and easy on the fingers for hand piecing. I enjoyed working with them so much.

If you'd like to start sewing wool with something small, you may like to try Lisa's Whimsical Woolys competition. All the details are here.
