I shared the tiny flower pot tutorial over on Instagram and thought I’d put it up here.




Step 1: gather supplies. Tiny flower pot I found with fairy house making supplies @joann_stores, yo-yo maker (round green thing), scissors, poly-fil, needle and thread (#aurifil), glue( I like E6000), #beadpins, and a fabric scrap.



step2: follow the directions that came with your yo-yo maker. The center cut out allows to to fussy cut. I love fussy cuts


step 3: gather and stuff your yo-yo with poly-fil. Stitch it closed and trim your thread tail.


step 4: squeeze a bead of glue around the interior of the flower pot rim. Stuff your yo-yo pin cushion with the seam side down into the flower pot. Allow to dry completely.




step 5: put some #beadpins on your new #tinyflowerpotbeadpins cushion. Enjoy the cuteness!

As part of my #whipyourwips2015 I decided to add another project to the month Jan. I figured I could squeeze in another pillow.  I made this flamingo block a while ago as a pattern test for Quiet Play. She is now holding a Zoo Animal BOM. Go check out all the cuteness y’all!




In my haste to complete this pillow, I accidently started quilting it before I removed the paper. D’oh! Keeping it really real here, folks. Moving on….



After removing the paper, ahem, I quilted with straight lines. I then used my favorite Hugh Jass ruler to square him up.


Isn’t Mingo a cutie!?


Simple envelope enclosure for the back.
