Off the Cuff

Several years ago I bought this book.

There are several really cute pincushion patterns and lots of creative ideas.

But truthfully, this is the one that caught my attention.

I had this idea if you use men's shirts for making quilt blocks, wouldn't it be cool to cut off the cuffs and make pincushions??

So, I bought a mans shirt for $1.00 from the thrift store and gave it a try.

Isn't he cute?? I did not follow the exact directions given in the book, but just did my own thing. And I still think he turned out cute :-) The ears are flower buttons.

How about you? Do you ever go out of your comfort zone? Let's be creative today and make something outside of the box!

The cuffs make a perfect pin cushion. Yes, I create out of my comfort zone on a regular basis. It's part of the growth process.
