French Country Pin Cushions

I'm in love with all things French Country
and today I'm going to make some little
French pin cushions...

...especially too because
 I can't wait to use the StazOn Ink pad again...

 and use these adorable French stamp stampers...

I started with paint cloth and some left over fabric 
scraps for the backing...

I stamped a few stamps on the front piece
and one on the back piece of the fabric too...
I also stamped the cutest little tag that I sewed into the seam...

 I put the right sides together and sewed around 3 1/2 sides...
I left 1/2 of the last side open to stuff with batting...

Then I hand sewed the last seam closed...
(I used a couple of different backing fabrics)

The tag is almost the cutest part...

Then I made a bunch more because they are so
flippin' adorable and I want to sell 
them on my shop...

I even sent one to my friend Heather during the 
Craftaholic's Craft Exchange...
Love them!
(Sorry if I said "cute" and "adorable" too many times but they are!)
