Primer pin cushion

The simplest of all the tools for the Toy Chest Etui is the primer, a tiny, flat pincushion.

Although the instructions call for skirtex to be inserted in this, I didn't comply. I can't imagine sticking pins into skirtex while working, so made it soft enough to take pins. I just applied interfacing, folded the sides under and attached the back. An easy one.

Thanks Margaret. Skirtex is a brandname for a polyester stiffener - comes in sheets about A4. I haven't seen it for sale in Australia. Betsy Morgan provided the bits we needed in the kits. It is very convenient.

It's quite cute, isn't it? I agree with you about the Skirtex, I wouldn't want a stiff pincushion either. Let us know how it works if you decide to use it!

Thanks Monica. Will do.
