Okay, I am not the seamstress of talent...but I got one together. I have been dying to try one and I am sure I will pay for my late night tomorrow...but HAD to get it out of my system. :)

Great job! I just could not master this. Mine was just a mess, so I made it into a square one. I will attempt it again one of these days. I didn't post as I thought square would be boring. Hehehehe

You did a great job - and aren't these fun? All but the hand stitching - but a challenge to us all.

I turned out nicely. I like your color choices. What website has these? I have never seen something like this. Is it a pincushion?

It is very pretty.

our very own mops gave us this design...
http://designsbycuties.cuteembroi...
and there was another cutie that started showing these and we all have just followed suit. If you were to put biscornu in, you'd find several ladies' ideas. It is a pincushion. I still need to practice, but was so glad that mops gave us a 'middle' of the side as a marker to make our pinning and sewing easier.

Thank you for your kind words ladies. I did have some fun with this and can't wait to try again. Practice does make perfect...right?

You will love it. You can't help but be proud of yourself.

You have inspired me to do one. I hope to post it soon.

OK, I have both pieces done, sorta know how to put it together, Dumb question. What do you all use to stuff it for a pin cushion?? I used a roll of fleece for a while, but found it made my pins dull !!

jkdavis1996 by jkdavis1996 19 Mar 2011

I just used poly-fil...but that may not be the correct filling. I wonder if something like rice would work...just a crazy thought...I'm not sure it would be tight enough to hold your pins...but I know I have seen them in pen holders as you leave the restaurants. and I'm quirky enough to try it one day.

No....I just want to make some more. Although I gotta admit...the button is really getting me. I hope this one stays attached.

At least you had a try at it - it's all a learning curve. Love Chris
