    Another one I just finished...this time I used a chunk of my string piecing and cut it into 3" squares and sewed them together to make this pincushion top..

    That is really cute Sue, do you put anything special inside or just regular batting?

    Really cute pinchusions. My Grandmother used to save our hair from haircuts and stuff pincushions with it. She said hair keeps your pins sharp. I have no clue whether or not that is true or just an "old" wives tale.
