Wow, they're awesome! I've been trying to think of a way to keep my measuring tape, pins and scissors all together, I might have to use your idea. It sounds much better then the "tool belt" idea I was having, hehe.

I also love the ice cream cone, it's so cute!

I love sharing my ideas and teaching others, How ever, If you do decide to use my ideas Please give me credit, It took several days for me to figure out how to do some of these and to work out the pattern pieces

Teag, I just love the way you used the flower pincushion in so many amazing ways! I'm having trouble picking a favorite; I love all the things you made.

I like to take that pattern and add my beaded charms to it. Here's one I made for the Shop the Swap round 6 last night.

LaughingLark your bead charm is awesome, I did some beading years ago, but it was never that intricate, so I can appreciate all the work that went in to it. Thank you for sharing

 Shocked
I couldn't believe the variety of these!!!
I made myself one - totally practical not decorated square thing- and realised how important the stuffing was. I had a block of foam, but although it's fab for pinning in, you can't remove the pins without holding the cushion with the other hand - which is silly because I'm holding the fabrics with the other hand.  I ended up stuffing it with rice which gave it weight, but of course must be kept away from moisture  Undecided.. What do you guys use? I like heavy cushions. What do you think? Huh

Hey Miss*Laurence, I either use polyfil or wool roving for my pincushions Smiley
