I didn’t know when to stop.

I hope you found one or two that you like…I have about 4 or 5 I want to make …not to mention the pincushion patterns I have sitting here.

Remember a Pincushion can be almost anything you stick a pin in ( couch & husband are exempt!) 

You don't have to use these examples…You may have some patterns at home you have been wanting to make…now is the time.

Have fun!




P.S. A girl can never have to many Pincushions!! Don’t forget these make great little gifts.
