As a follow up to my Tomato Pincuchion post here a while ago, here is Pincushion number two! This large flower pincushion was made using a pattern I found online: The link can be found here:

Keep in mind this pincushion is a lot bigger then the tomato ones. I love that it can hold all of my (very many) pins. I used some old scraps, old napkins that had been gifted to me. Anyways, hope you like it! C&C's welcome.

Cute. I could really do with a large pincushion, but it wouldn't fit in my sewing box (well, it's important to me), maybe later.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

I love the fabrics that you used.  I never would have thought to put them together, but they look great!

I like this - yours is cute. I like all the petals, I can kinda sort the different pins & needles I use. Safety pins on one petal, regular pins on another, hand sewing needles on one - that way I wouldn't always be hunting for pins & needles. I have to go check out the pattern. Thanks for sharing.

That's beautiful!  What do you stuff them with?

Aislynn, I just stuffed mine with the polyester stuffing I had on hand. However, I have heard that cotton stuffing works even better for pincushions. If you try it, let me know, I'd love to heard how it compares. Thanks everyone, for your wonderful comments!

That looks great.  i love how there are so many different pincushions out there.  How big is it?
