Craft Magazine recently posted the Pin Cushion Caddy pattern from Anna Maria Horner’s new Book Seams to Me. As soon as I saw it, I knew I had to make it. Here it is;
I love how it turned out, even though it is not exactly how the FO looked in the pattern. I found after extensive ripping, measuring, and remeasuring, that the pattern did not correctly state the seam allowances for the exterior of the caddy, and as there are 8 pieces to the exterior, even slight seam allowance problems mean big problems. I finally remedied the problem by using the stated allowance in half the seams, and 5/8″ in half the seams, alternating the allowances as I went. The suggested interfacing was not adequate either. I ended up sing actual cardboard!
Still, I LOVE the outcome, and the pattern was free. I plan to check out the rest of the book soon. Amazon has a few pictures from inside the book, and another free project.
