I actually don't remember seeing the source in this thread, but I saw it somewhere on here. Here is a link for where you can order "emery sand": http://www.thecalicocat.com/patterns-pincushions.htm

I haven't used it, but it seems like it would work well.

This one I gave to a friend who is not from Texas, so, I used some fabric with Bluebonnets on it.  The back is vintage chenille.

Hi all!  Everyone's pincushions are looking fantastic!  I made this one a little while ago and just thought I would share...

Thank you!

And I LOVE the square pincushions!  One of those is next on my list!

Marleah-thanks for that link!  I browsed through it for a while, and I really like it!  I just don't know if I should just go ahead and buy the patterns for the pincushions, or just go ahead and try it myself.  Well, I'll probably just try it myself and it comes out horribly, then I'll get the pattern!

So, I tried my hand at making a pincushion too. As it was getting pretty crazy, I decided to hold off on putting on the buttons. I'm not even sure what good a button is for on a pincushion? *laughs* Anyhow, as soon as I saw this pattern I just had to try it!



I'll probably make some more later, now that I think I've finally figured out the hang of it! It got to be a challenge keeping my puppy from wanting to chew on it- I really had to hide it from her. (Please excuse the earring hanging out there. *smile*)

The pincushion craftalong has inspired my dsis and I to have a crafter's night to make pincushions!

Shimmer do you have a pattern or tutorial that you used for your 3D square one?

The bluebonnet fabric is wonderful and the idea of chenille is a good one.  Smiley
