That pear pincushion is so perfectly pearish! It's adorable, and I love the pincushion, too!

Heather-first-love your site-you rock:) Next I was looking at your yoyo tute and I wondered if you had any handy hints about a quick and precise way to cut out multiple circles if you are making lot's of yoyo's? I normally use a rotary cutter for everything else but wondered if that's what you use?

Hey, thanks everyone!  And 'retro-redux' one idea might be to take a CD you care nothing about and use it as your pattern -- you could take a rotary cutter with a smaller blade (so it turns more easily) and carefully cut your fabric circles, using the CD as your guide.

That's so cool! Did you just wing it, or did you modify a pattern? I'm just starting off with the whole sewing thing, and I've been thinking about making myself a not-too-boring but not-too-challenging pin cushion. Guess I'll have to look elsewhere to look for not-too-challenging, but does anybody have a suggestion for a beginner's pincushion?

Are your pins modified too, or did you buy them with these little yellow bits sticking to them?

Hi Sarantha -- Yep, I designed the pattern and I'll have it all published pretty soon.  Till then, check out this simple round pincushin tutorial:

http://whipup.net/2006/03/01/stickin-it-to-the-pincushion/

The pins are some fun leafy ones from JoAnns.  I did a post about them here, if you'd like to see a clearer photo of them:

There are some fun ways to modify pins, though.  Have you ever seen shrinky-dink pins?  Check out my family of shrinky dink pins here:

Ok, enough links, for now.  Have fun making your pincushion!
