I was challenged to make this by a good friend i have never met (yes, another Cutie!) I'm not even sure what to call it.



Any way, it was made entirely in the hoop with the exception of one seam in the lining and the final closure on the pincushion. The last picture shows it ready to come out of the hoop for the final time.


The pincushion is connected to the base by old faithful Kam Snaps.

Oh my, how in the world you ended up making this in the hoop and together is beyond me. My table gizmo I made at quilting club years ago was a tile in bottom of pincushion and the bag Velcro'd on and I put a cottage cheese container in the basket for my cut off waste. You are one of the Master's of creating great things in digitizing.

W O W! I make thread catchers, but not in the hoop I like my embroidery machine way more than my sewing machine! Hoping you will be putting on your engineered in stitches donation facebook group.

You obviously have an Engineering mind Sue, to work this out in itself is a miracle of engineering! It's something all of us sewers can use and of course it's a very interesting project! Love Chris P.S. I agree with Vicki with regard to your mind.
