    Cute idea for it. I used to make them with an open bottom to put over the eggs at Easter. I still have a few and also some my grandmother. I think I'll pull them out this year.

    I hope somebody comes up with the pattern! I remember my kids getting them as Easter gifts, and now I would love to make one for my granddaughter.

    That is so cute!! My grandmother tried to teach me to crochet but it didn't work. Now she is gone and my Mom has Alzheimer's. It is something they both would have made and loved.

    I had forgotten all about these.Mom had them sitting around as egg covers for decoration. This is a brilliant idea to use them as pincushions! Thanks for the memories. Now to find the pattern
