I can't help it.  They're so tiny and cute.  And easy.



Another view (yes, I'm a dork--that's a little needle book with my (really bad) embroidery on the front.)



I love my pin cushion.

Very cute. Do you put anything in them to sharpen the needles?

No, I thought of that, but I wasn't sure what I would put in there...sand maybe?  It's just stuffed with poly-fil.

I heard somewhere that a piece of a steel wool pad in the middle works. I keep meaning to try this.

Oooh...that sounds like a good idea!  I might need to try that tonight!  Huh, maybe after the toddler goes to bed?  :O)

Very good idea and it came out great!!!  Good tip to use steel wool.  I was wondering the same thing.

What kind did you make?  I haven't had time yet (long story short: my son went to bed at 10:30PM; my dog woke me up at 5AM.)  But I was wondering how it would work with having to push the embroidery floss through the center/steel wool so many times, and if it would snag?
