Upcycled Wrist Pincushions: craftLAB recap!

Posted by Crystal Pepperdine, Founder and Executive Director of Flint Handmade

We had an awesome time at craftLAB on Sunday making upcycled wrist pincushions. 

Here's a good tutorial that shows you step-by-step how to make finger and wrist pincushions as well as pincushions you can mount on your sewing machine or ironing board.

And, now for the pictures!

Sarah, Nicole and Ali (l-r) cheese it up for the camera while selecting their pincushion fabric. :)
Nicole (r) was interviewed by Ryan Czachorski of The Flint Journal.  Check out the article!  

Ali smiles sweetly and shows off her two pincushions.

Cindy (l) and her daughter, Melissa, each made two pincushions.  Can you see they made one set to match?

Nicole, Michelle and Ali (l-r) look so cute with their double sets of pincushions.

Group Photo!

Mike was kind enough to take the group photo for us, so we got a shot of him with Marie and her pincushion.  Thanks, Mike!

Me (r) and my mom, Mary, model our pincushions.  I love that my mom is wearing a Flint Handmade Knuckles shirt and I am wearing a red "END MASS PRODUCTION, BUY HANDMADE" shirt from Deadworry.  I bought the shirt at Wholly Craft! in Columbus.

Suzanne (l) and Amber were the last two ladies to make their pincushions and were featured in the photos taken by Matt Bach from The Flint Journal!  Suzanne is wearing an FH Knuckles shirt that she screenprinted at our Yudu Demo in March!
