Zakka style pincushion

As you know, I joined the Zakka Style Sew Along. This is the zakka pincushion, the third project. I stitchted the tree on the button.
Each time, a talented blogger gives us tips on making the project of the week. Amy at Pink Pinguin gave some great tips here, which you can use for many more projects.
Instead of linen, I am using Essex for the zakka projects, which you can get here and here.

Zoals jullie weten, doe ik mee met de Zakka Style Sew Along. Dit is het zakka speldenkussentje. De boom op de knoop heb ik gesticht. 
Iedere keer geeft een zeer getalenteerde blogger tips voor het project van de week. Deze week heeft Amy van Pink Pinguin tips gegeven. Nu kun je je voor zo'n klein project afvragen, welke tips er gegeven kunnen worden. Kijk maar eens hier
In plaats van linnen, gebruik ik Essex voor deze projecten, wat je hier en hier kunt krijgen.
