    I have one of these that my Gma had made from mens ties.I made one by looking at hers.I used the english paper piece method using a 60 degree diamond.I layered a cardboard diamond with two layers of batting the same size.I then cut out a piece of fabric 1/2 inch larger all around..I gathered the fabric around the diamond with a running stitch...Hand sew 5 diamonds together for each section.Then sew the sections together.. The toughest part was hiding the stitches when I sewed the 5 diamond sections together ..

    Hi Gma Cindy:
    That sounds like a good way of making it. I'm definately going to try one. Thanks for the info.

    Oh, Oh Oh, (hand waving in air) if you find a very old tomato type pincushion at a thrift store, buy it. Open it up and you will be amazed at the amount of needles you will find inside. And the older the pincushion the better quality steel needles you will find.

    Cherish this from your grandmother. I have a few handmade items my grandmother made and they mean so much to me. I'm leaving several small handmade items for my grandkids like pin cushions, small pillows and tussymussies.
