Peppermint Pincushions

I used the free pattern from Connecting Threads to make these two pincushions.


One is for me, and the other is going to be put up for auction during my guild's "Make It, Bake It, Sew It, Grow It" auction at our next meeting.


I decided to make two at once because based on past experience when I say, "I will make one for me later on", it always turns out that later never comes and I never get one for myself.  So this time I cut out enough fabric to make two and now I have one to give and one to keep.

This one is mine.
My son Thomas liked the button better on this one so that is why I picked this one to keep.

Your pincushions are very, very cute! Was it hard to sew the curved parts?
