Late Last Night...a Cute Pincushion

While I was watching television last night, I finished another pin cushion.  This pattern is from Better Homes and Gardens American Patchwork and Quilting Magazine.  I think the name of it is pretty as a pincushion.

It is made from wool scraps.  Although I like the way it turned out, it is not very practical unless you are using really small pins.  It is not very deep and when you put a pin in it, it sticks out of the bottom.  Maybe I need to enlarge the crown pattern so that it will be deep enough to insure that the pins don't stick out.


  1. sure is cute!!! Maybe it could be used as a wrist pincushion by adding a strap.
