    As per request,
    This is my most clever of all pin cushions.
    My wonderfully creative sister-in-law put this together for me and I just love it!
    She was so tickled to design it special for me that she embellished it with a beautiful ring the adorable beaded cuff. I think the manicure she gave this quite feminine cushion is brilliant.

    Does any one else have a special pin cushion they would like to share?
    I would love to see them.

    OUCH!!! That's just too realistic looking but I LOVE it. Do you thing that the two of you could put together a tutorial? I'd love to make some of those.

    Here's some of mine that I made following instructions from dotcomdtcm. Silcone cupcake holders and Partylite tea candle holders.

    No she found a pin cushion at a garage sale that was similar and made some of her own as gifts with her special touch added.
    It starts out as a silky glove she usually picks up at thrift stores or yard sales.
    You know what they say about one mans junk!

    That is unique!
    Looks like something you can use if you are mad at someone, you pretend this is their hand. Get your frustrations out.
    Did I really just say that..... Bad!!!!!!!

    I use the magnetic pin holders and one that someone crocheted me about 22 years ago. It looks like a hat and has red ribbon on it for Valentine's!

    Hi, well I guess I will send a picture of how this glove pin cushion started for me. I bought it at a thrift store and thought how cute! I could make one of those, so I have only made three so far, but have others started. I kind of over stuffed Kats glove, as it was my first one, but she loves it and that is all that counts. All I did was stuff the glove with stuffing and added fake fingernails you buy at Walmart. Added something for a ring and trim for bracelet. Naturally you sew the bottom of glove so stuffing stays in. You can embellish the way you want. Someone besides myself had this idea, I can't claim it, darn! This
    is the glove I bought and still use.

    I thought so and it is easy to move and maneuver from spot to spot. I love the unusual, that's why it caught my eye and I bought it.

    That is really neat. I have a pin cushion bought from the store. I always see such cute ones all around. I suppose I will have to put it on my list of to do things. Would be fun to make one. I think I was in grade school the last time I made a pin cushion. Made it for my Mom think we used beans in a paper cup a piece of styro foam and some felt and frilly ribbon decor. Haha..what a memory. Thanks for sharing.:thumbsup:
