I volunteered to help susanab put together an angel package for a swapper in the Old Fashioned Romance swap.  My contribution was a pincushion featuring the swapper's favorite quote from "Pride and Prejudice".



I started by printing the quote off the computer, then sketching my idea around it, and gathering the things I thought I would use in making it.  I traced the quote onto muslin with a light box and Sakura Micron markers.


The pin with the polymer clay bird on the end was left over from another swap, and it was just the right color for this pincushion.  I think it came out looking perfectly romantic!
