A Gift

My dear mother-in-law requested a pin cushion for her birthday.  She found one on Etsy she liked (this one), but wanted different colors to match her sewing room.  

Here is my version (Karen if you are reading avert your eyes!):

I think it turned out cute, although I wish it was a little rounder and less square.  I knew I should have made a trial run, but with limited craft time it's hard to do so.

I thought this little patch was a fun touch.  It certainly wasn't placed there to cover up a hole...

Perhaps if I find myself with some spare time in the near future I will make myself a cute pin cushion.  I love the old school tomato ones (like here, or here, or here)!


  1. I've always wanted a pin cushion that looks like a cactus instead of a tomato. http://jennskistudio.blogspot.com/2007/12/cutest-pin-cushion.html

  2. How big is this? Is it worn around the wrist? Yours looks great by the way.

  3. It's around 6-8 inches wide. It wasn't made to wear around your wrist, although that's a cute idea!
