    Here is a Bird pincushion I made many many of over the years...this one I traced from an old old magazine..can't even remember what one it was and then enlarged it to the size I wanted..I have no printed directions only the traced pieces.

    I can trace the pattern pieces and share that but I have no printed instructions...but I think the average sewer could easily put it together....will scan the pattern pieces as soon as I get a a chance and share

    Thanks so much. I love it. I think I have a similar pattern that is intended as a Christmas ornament. If you can scan the patter, that;s great!

    Here are the pieces for the pincushion ...I am not so sure how well I would do at a tutorial but I can give it a try as soon as I get a chance..maybe someone else who is more experienced can do one and then give a tutorial?
    Since I have the pattern out I do dthink I will make a couple of these again soon so if I do, I will take a few notes and pics as I go along...

    Thanks Sue,

    I see you are from Ct. My daugfter will grad from Wesleyan in Middletown. I will try to make these into cardinals for graduation. Her Dean deserves a personal gift and handmade is always best!

    Years ago I sold many at $10 each but that was when people were really into buying crafts but for something like this ..maybe you can get $10 or at least $8
