May Book Challenge

If you have not entered the "What's It Look Like" Giveaway

Welcome to "In The Boon Docks". For the month of May Book Challenge I made a pincushion for a swap partner using the patterns from pages 19 & 24 from Zakka Style by Rashia Coleman-Hale! I was gifted this book by my wonderful Australian friend Rie at CraftyRie for Christmas. It is amazing to how many bloggers begin lifelong friendships from one comment! I know it is true, Rie and I have and we have never met! Enough of that! The book is awesome so many great projects! I recommend it to anyone who sews or wants to begin sewing! It inspires you to be creative and think outside the box!

On page 19, it showed about attaching Vintage Buttons to your pincushions. So, I dug around in my stash until I found the perfect one!

The pincushion on the front of the book is what I started out making and ended up with a completed different look!
