how do you mack it.

I love this! Pretty and useful! I'm a beginning sewing machine sewer so I'm looking for simple projects like this. The directions seem easy to follow, and I got some bandannas in various colors that would look great in this. I can buy more too because they're a really affordable material, usually 99 cents a piece, and I could probably make several pincushions with just a few of them.

This is the cutest pincushion pattern and it looks so easy! I love making small quilt blocks and I especially love them in the 1930' prints. I am wondering what everyone uses for stuffing them? The pattern says crushed walnut shells or stuffing, Does stuffing work that well? Where do you all find the crushed walnut shells?

You can never have enough pincushions. If you are like me with several projects made at the same time. I cut fabric for projects then prepare them for sewing with differents sizes of pins.
