    I made these little pin cushions using applesauce cups with a metal washer in the bottom for weight. Stuffed with whatever your choice and covered with quilted fabric with elastic casing at the bottom. I used various colors of felt to cover the bottom with both fabrics glued on. They may be decorated any way you like. Make nice gifts.

    That's a neat idea. Great for recycling too.

    Look for the patterns from Miss Rosies Quilt Co., They have a line called Fruit Salad Pincushions. The water mellon and strawberry's are really nice. I'm working on them now.
    Also the current F&P magazine has an owl that's really cute too

    Our own Dotty here made a cupcake pin cushion that was adorable. A donut too,and it looked real! I want to try a few for Christmas presents. I believe they are in Tutorials here.

    No pattern online that I am aware of. These were my own idea.
