So pretty and fun! Needle roll, scissors fob, your imaginiation is the only limit on how to use these beach-themed motifs! The turtle is done over 1 on the 32 ct Sand and made into a pin for the pincushion, but each little portion – eg either fish, seahorse, turtle etc. may be interchangeable and may be made into only 3 sections or use all 6 or 5 as shown in the photograph. Have fun picking your pincushion! Model: 32 ct Sand from Picture This Plus. Pin cushion / needle roll: 37 x 163 stitches.
This pattern was originally taught at Acorns and Threads in Portland, OR. I have changed the middle to reflect a more general wording that we can all use, and it became the inspiration for a totally new series! It is what I seem to do best, mix old yet make new! Enjoy!
