    Where can I download a pattern for a pincushion

    I've seen so many cute pincushions and would like to try and make a few. I've googled them and had no luck finding a pattern I could download. Anyone have a site where I could download a cute pin cushion? I saw an owl I really liked and a cupcake, but I am open to anything. I saw here on The Quilting Board pictures a gal had of all her pin cushions and it made me want to try my hand at it. It looked like something I would have fun doing. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance. Jeanne

    Here is my favorite. I put rice in the bottom (1/4 full) end and it stays put. I have made so many of them I have simplified it to be better. I use very pretty layer cake pre cuts and wool batting. Instead of sewing the heart top end together I use a large safety pin and put more safety pin on that pin. Easy to have them at hand and off the pincushion.

    Here is one I love to keep by my sewing machines. It has a nice sized pin cushion, a little trash container and little pockets to keep small sissors, seam ripper or whatever you like.

    Sorry, I didn't read your post closely to realize you are looking for "cute" pincushions. The pincushion I posted is functional, not cute.

    Not sure if you'd consider this "cute". I think it's pretty and my quilter friends like it because it has sections, which I use for different pins and needles. The green side is the bottom.

    I used this tutorial. Hers seems to have a flat bottom, I don't know what I did different!
