A Good Way To Use Scraps of Fabric

I don't usually write two posts in one day, but I had to share this....

A few weeks ago the new DIY Dish girls, showed everyone how to make Two-Tiered Cake Pincushions.  Very cute!  I have a million-gazillion cake stands, so I've been itching to create one of these little prickly confections of my own.  Well, you know I've been working on my first quilting projects, a table runner and placemats. I'm almost done.  The last one is cut out and I just need to finish it up.  I have LOTS of scraps lying around, so I made a cake that matches my pretty table linens!

Check it out!  SOOOO easy to make and truly no-sew (unless you want to).   If you want to see how to do it, the first episode is over at DIY Dish.  Also, on the second episode, they show you how to make custom pins for your cute cake.  I have to buy some special stuff to do that, but I'm going to eventually play with that idea.

Have a great day!
