After seeing these, I've fallen in love.  I'm considering trying my hand at them, but I think I stumbled across another way:
It's a crocheted version.

Sorry for the cross post, but I just had to put up a pic of the pincushion I did from this pattern! It was probably one of the most interesting things I've ever sewn. But now that I know how it goes together, I might make some more for friends. Smiley

I have been wanting my own pin cushion for the longest time!  This is absolutely gorgeous!

there is a victorian whimsie ball that is very like this and it was used as a child's toy and a pincushion(not at the same time) and smaller ones were used as Christmas ornaments my mother-in-law had one that had belonged to her great-grandmother (it was full of pins and needles that had dropped down into the stuffing)

Hey Patchwork! So this is the pincushion you were telling me about at the meetup.  It's so cool!  Did the celtic knotwork come already on the fabric?  Do you carry fabric like this? Wink

Thanks for the pincushion love, Bongirl5!  Yes, this is the one I was talking about!  Grin

The fabric did come with the knots printed on it.  It is an old fabric, so, we don't have it in the store anymore.  I have quite a bit of it at home, though...but not in blue.  I think I have it in a purple.  Next time we get together I will try to remember to bring some along for you, because I don't think I will be using it (any time soon, anyway!).

Awesome!  Looks easy to do, but complicated-looking in the end (Does that make sense?)
Thanks for the tute!

I found this thread in January and got right to work!  I love the look of this thing!  Thank you, patchwork orange!

Now I am working on a felt, "black and white and red all over" one.  I'll share it when I'm done.  Thanks again!
