Vintage Lilly Pulitzer Fabric Pincushions

Oh hi, remember me? Yes, it's been far too long.  But I'm here and all motivated to blog and share because Pinterest has my creative side in an uproar.  Seriously, the project list is getting a little ridiculous.  I spent yesterday afternoon blowing on eggs so the girls can dye them and insert secret messages inside to send to their cousin as an Easter gift. Yes, I realize that Easter is more than a month away. Thank you Pinterest.  Meanwhile the laundry (or as we call it: 'Mt. Apparel'*) continues to reach new altitudes and I'm completely fine with it. Happiness is really all about acceptance.  Keeping that in mind...

Today I made these little pincushions.  Lately I've been obsessed with them.  Perhaps because I've been sewing more often these days.  Regardless, I got busy while the girls were at school and here are the results.  I added them to the etsy shop.

They are all made with vintage Lilly Pulitzer fabric.  Most of the patterns were designed by Suzie Zuzek.  One was designed by Amy dePoo (Suzie's daughter) and another by Peter Pell (he was a co-owner of Key West Hand Print Fabrics and did Lilly's print coloration for many years).
