2   [Rubik's Cube Pincushion] Link to free tutorial on pincushion in Completed Projects by tovaopatrny on: August 27, 2011 05:41:19 PM
My tomato has served me well, but now there's a new, retro, radical pincushion in my sewing room.  My Rubik's cube pincushion was fun to make and so much fun to use.  Its inspired me to make other types of pincushions.  I'm offering my video tutorial for free and you can find it here:  https://www.professorpincushion.com/userblog/professorpincushion/puzzle-cube-pincushion  along with some pictures of my box camera pincushion and vintage radio pincushion.  Cheesy

3  Snack bag - link to free video tutorial and pattern in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by tovaopatrny on: July 30, 2011 10:54:54 AM
I'm trying to be more green and the first place I started was with my lunch since I fill it with tons of snacks to sustain me throughout the day.  I also found a new way to use my rubber stamps!  You can find the free tutorial here:

4  Need advice on blog giveaways in Crafty Business Discussion by tovaopatrny on: July 11, 2011 10:47:34 AM
Hi there! 
I'm looking for advice on doing craft related blog giveaways.  My blog and site, Professor Pincushion, is still a baby and I thought doing giveaways would be a nice thing to do in order to get the word out about its existence.  Currently, I'm trying to give away this pillow I've made: 

Unfortunately, this giveaway is going the same way as my last giveaway in that I can't seem to generate any interest or participation, other than that of my mother.  I've tried to make my giveaways as easy as possible, ("like" Professor Pincushion's page on fb, follow on twitter, or just leave a comment on my pillow blog entry).  And I've made a post about it on as many craft, sewing related forums as I can.  Other than that, I don't know what else I can do and, so far, the results are pretty discouraging.  (I've participated in other blogs' giveaways and see how popular they can be.)  But for me, I'm finding that it really is hard to give something away.  Does anyone have any tricks that I'm just missing out on?  Any help would be so much appreciated.  Thank you!!!

6  Shoebag, link to free tutorial and pattern in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by tovaopatrny on: June 10, 2011 12:36:59 PM
I made this shoebag so that I would no longer just toss my nice shoes into my suitcase.  Now they travel in more style than myself.  This bag was easy to make and I enjoyed doing freezer paper stenciling.  Click on the link to check out the free video tutorial and pattern.  It's for the basic shoebag I created, but you could easily add a handle to this if you wished.

7  Kangaroo Apron-link to free pattern and tutorial in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by tovaopatrny on: May 20, 2011 11:21:46 AM
I just finished making this kangaroo apron this weekend and I love it!  Is it weird that I want to wear it all the time?  Grocery shopping, getting my oil changed, going to check the mail....There are some things that just put a smile on your face and you don't want to fight it.  

All this smiling puts me in a generous and carefree mood. I have the pattern and a video tutorial that is yours for the taking.  Free!  Cheesy  https://www.professorpincushion.com/userblog/professorpincushion/kangaroo-apron

Hope you like it, as much as I do!

8  Aromatherapy Dolphin Neck Pillow-free pattern in Completed Projects by tovaopatrny on: April 19, 2011 03:31:38 PM
I designed this neck pillow and filled it with uncooked rice and dried lavender.  Not only does it smell great but it can be heated in the microwave or put in the freezer.  Fun to make and fun to relax in.  You can download my pattern and get directions here:  https://www.professorpincushion.com/userblog/professorpincushion/aromatherapy-neck-pillow  
Enjoy!!  Cheesy

9  apple cozies in Completed Projects by tovaopatrny on: April 18, 2011 08:06:59 AM
My precious apples are now protected against unnecessary bruising from rattling around in my lunch box all day.  I've made simpler apple cozies with with handles so they could be carried on their own but I made these a little bit more elaborate in time for easter.  I love the bunnies in love and they'd look adorable in an easter basket so that kids won't just eat candy!  It definitely makes a healthy alternative more fun for the kiddies.
You can see pictures of my cozies here https://www.professorpincushion.com/userblog/professorpincushion/apple-cozy
