So Easy, and a Sweet Gift for Quilting and Sewing Friends Too!

This darling pincushion caught our eye and immediately had us dreaming of a trip to the thrift store. Just about any small cute planter will work. Simply make the pincushion to fit.

The one shown here is by Monica from Cut, Stitch + Piece. She provides excellent instructions to adapt to your own little planter (find them at thrift stores and rummage sales).

Monica was inspired by the cuties made by Kerri from Lovely Little Handmades. Notice how she pieced hexies for the pincushion on this one.

Whether you piece yours or simply use a pretty piece of fabric, you’ll need pebbles (for weight), friberfill and a glue gun.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
