    dressmakergurl....have you seen the free dressform pincushion pattern on the DIY network? I have made a bunch of them, they are not too hard.

    I made 41 pumpkin pincushions to sell this weekend at a small craft fair.

    I think they make for a cute display!!! Keep collecting! :-) I'm inspired to make some now...thanks for the pics.
    Creative clutter is better than idle neatness.

    Thanks for posting. I like pin cushions and like to sometimes give them as gifts. I am currently making a hat pincushion. Thanks for the owl. My college grand daughters are into owls. Maybe a stocking stuffer for them at Christmas.
    I find even non sewers like a pincushion gift.

    Mahalo to each and every one of you who posted photos, ideas, and/or links.

    I love pincushions and, NO, you can't have too many.

    For those with CATS who perceive toy sized pincushions as an invitation to steal and play with them, keep your collection inside a large clear glass jar with a lid.

    If life gives you lemons, make Limoncello!

    OMG, those are adorable!!! I love every one of them.

    I have just recently decided to begin collecting pin cushions. I use the mechanic's trays for sewing, especially since I am clumsy and knock things over all the time. But love the idea of the cushions for collection.

    more pincushions

    Most of my pincushions were posted on page 9. I have added some more since then. I have been trying to upload some new pictures, but each time the upload has failed. I will try again later to post some pictures. I just made 41 pumpkin pincushions. I made velvet strawberries, ice cream cones, as well as repurposed items.
