I'm a newbie and I didn't really know where to post these, so I thought I'd put them here.  If they should be elsewhere, let me know!

I've been on kind of a pincushion making kick as a way to use up scraps of fabric I have that probably won't ever make it into a quilt. 

The first was made using this tutorial: http://www.planetjune.com/blog/offset-square-wrist-pincushion-tutorial/

I used different fabrics for the top and bottom to highlight the interesting construction (the bottom is bright pink to match the pink of the top fabric), I made it bigger, and I omitted the wristband part.  You probably can't see it in the picture, but the bead in the middle is shaped like a watermelon seed to go with the theme:

The second one was my own pattern.  I cut two identical round pieces and a strip of contrasting fabric and sewed them together:
