About Ningiu

Ningiu is the Greenlandic word for grandmother, since I'm part Greenlandic and because handicraft reminds me of my grandmother and mother I find the name appropriate.

A winner and a quick tutorial

Thank you for your comments!!
I'm so glad I'm not the only one here :-)

And the winner is:
Jenny with number 2, I'll contact you shortly!

And for the rest of you, I'll show you a handy little finger-pincushion tutorial:

Start with a 4,5" inch square (I used a 5" square, and it turned out just a little too big)

Fold it into a triangle, with right sides together.

Stitch along the open edges, leaving a little gap for turning and stuffing.
Turn, and fill stuffing through the little gap, stuffing it firmly in the middle, and leaving the sharper points unstuffed.

Blind or slipstitch the oppening together.
Gather the two sharp points making them slightly ovelap.
Stitch them together forming a ring
And there you have a fancy little pincushion always nearby.

I would love to know if you use this tutorial, or if you have any questions or comments :-)
By the way, do any of you know how to stop spam comments, I've been getting quite alot lately, and think they are really annoying!!!
Take care.

That is so cute!! (and useful!)

I don't know how to stop spam but you can change your comment settings so that you see them before they get published and can choose to delete them if they're spam... Good luck with it!
