First attempts to modify the pattern Helga to create a pincushion I will call Irene… needs some work.
The first, middle row is too small, so the second row buckles too much. Putting it on my sample pincushion shows it will not sit flat on the cushion.
The fun of experimenting – I get to cut the first attempt to pieces!
This shows that the second row may actually work well, if I do something different with the first row.
And there we have it… a new first row. And the second row works well around it. The first row now has the flavour of the 3 little rings I liked so much from the inspiration pattern, so I’m very happy with this.
