    I need help to find a project.

    I made a red pincushion and posted it here, and want to make one for a new sewer friend. It is a pincushion, that I hand sewed. It is red with gold in the fabric that I fussy cut a hibiscus flower out of, and you insert the pins around the outside edge. The only stuffing was a small piece of thick batting front and back, No stuffing. It used two plastic discs. It was possibly called a safety pin cushion.
    My friend currently carries a small tomato pincushion in her purse when she is in waiting rooms etc. and I thought she could use a safer one to carry. I have searched this board and the net for over an hour using every description I can think of. Can any of you help me find it. It was not the orange and green one which is the only one I found here. Maybe it is pictured as a recent project? I do not know how long ago it was, but it was a free project. I have changed computers and evidently lost the pattern in the transfer. Help.

    If I understand correctly you posted it here. If that’s the case you should be able to look through all your posts or started threads.

    I can not remember why I posted it, except I have posted it with other projects, I believe. Life with memory problems is difficult. I did look through everything I posted in Pictures, I just hoped someone would remember the pattern for it. I think I got the idea for the pin holder from someone here....

    Is it this one? It's not red but maybe it's the same pattern.

    Nope, that is the only other one I have made. The one I am seeking is deep red with gold, and at first glance looks like a fabric cookie with pins straight pins pushed in from the side.

    I found my way to the gallery, and it is not there. If I could at least remember what it was called, or where I got it, I could hunt more.

    Thank you. At least I have the picture and a vague memory of how it was done, now that I have seen it again.

    It doesn't look like the original poster crewsemj has been active since 2012 ? I wonder if you sent her a private message, she might still get it and help you out?
