    Pincushions

    I made these as a gift. They were so fun and easy, I think I will make some more.

    They are so cute, and they look like a lot of work.
    Love to quilt and play with the great grandkids

    Thanks! The Folded Star pin cushion is made with a foundation template from Plum Easy Patterns. I used the dimensions of a free pattern I found online - Heather Bailey Square Deal Pin Cushion - for the one with the selvage top.

    I've never made a pin cushion. Are they hard to do? Those are really cute and you did a great job..

    What is your filler? I am making the strawberries and am having a difficult time finding crushed walnut shells (where I live).

    Thank you. These were the first pin cushions for me. I thought they were really easy to do (and I don't have a lot of experience). Easy enough that I am going to make more!

    I used crushed walnut shells in the folded star cushion, and some poly pellets I got at JoAnn's in the selvage cushion. I have heard that sand makes a good filler, also.
