We're moving! Look for Indygo Junction soon on Handicraft.com
This contest has ended. Congratulations to Stacey S. who is our lucky winner! I don't know about you, but as a sewist, I need a lot of pincushions - one for every room would be ideal. As functional as a magnetic pincushion or tomato is, sometimes I want something prettier. I think the Patchwork Pincushion pattern is perfect to add some whimsy to my notions! IJ1119-2T
These pincushions were inspired by vintage fruit pincushions that Amy has collected over the years. However, we did have to give them a twist. The originals were solid, but we thought that adding a patchwork element would spice up their style. 8594i copy   This is a great project to use up your scraps or “Layer Cakes” or “Mini Charm Pack”. A “Mini Charm Pack” is perfect for the large strawberry. No pincushion is complete without a tiny emery strawberry, and we included instructions to make the smallest strawberry an emery sharpener. 8582insta copy This contest has ended.

My grandmothers red tomato.

Marlene Clausen on

One I made that is divided to show sewing machine needle sizes, so I don’t have to try to guess what size the needle is! I also fill with crushed walnut shells to keep them sharp and shiny.

Have always loved pin cushions made with fun fabrics! Something extra to brighten my sewing time!

Favorite—A larger octagon pincushion-One sits on the end of the ironing board, one at the cutting station & one at the sewing machine. They are heavy and don’t shift when you poke a pin in them.

I have an old red tomato pincushion that I have used forever. It’s like an old friend sitting by my machine and offering me pins and needles.

Shirl on

my favorite pin cushion is a small velvet filled with scraps of quilt batting. thanks for pattern.

Jane Callaghan on

My favorite pin cushion is magnetic. I enjoy making pin cushions. A drapery fabric sample was used to make a large chicken, and that is another favorite. I recently finished crocheting a hedgehog pincushion. That is also very special.
