While making the bowl cozies, I was doing something I don’t do often. I was using pins.
Despite the fact that I really don’t like using them, I have some really neat pins.
I still had them in the storage they came with (the cats in a little plastic box, and the unicorns on a plastic round. And honestly, it was a pain to pull them out and put them back. I needed some pin cushions!
I wanted something simple and I found this tutorial.
It’s super easy, and you only need four squares, and a button. It’s a great excuse to break into the “odd button” jar.
And just like the tutorial says, it only takes about five minutes to put them together!
I made one for each set…
And a third one for mom!

Those pins are adorable and the cushions simply perfect.
How sweet! Dad love making pin cushions from his quilting scraps. They really come in handy but I have to say my pins are not anywhere as cool as those.
Love your pins (especially the CATS) and the pincushions are so cute. I’ve made a couple using cross-stitched pieces (biscornu), but I like your fabric ones.
Handy and cute!
What wonderful pins you have collected. Those pincushions are so cute (and easy). I have some orphan four patch blocks that I am going to experiment with. Thank you for sharing.
Super cute pins, especially the cat and the pincushions are great too. Your Mom is going to love the pincushion.
Oh, how sweet! These are very appropriate for everyone who sews!!
