I decided to see what all the fuss is about with these pincushions. Entire books dedicated to pincushions, tons of Etsy sellers featuring pincushions in every imaginable shape, and blogs with photos of….pincushions! So I gathered some stuff off the sewing room floor and made an easy one with some vintage ribbon:


Personally I am a fan of the magnetic pincushion because I can just snap them up when they are strewn all over the floor and you can throw your pins back on while you are sewing. So I will try my new pincushion and see if form beats function. But I’ll be thinking about creating a pattern for a pretty magnetic pincushion!

I found so many lovely and inspiring pincushions around craftland that I had to show you. Oh, and there are so many more! Click on each image for a link.
