And then I gave it away.

I told you I was trying to get through my pile of projects. I whipped up this little pretty in one evening this week. I didn't get to enjoy it for long as I gave it away to my coworker. She had given me the material earlier this summer to make her a bag and I've since squeeked out a tissue holder and now this lovely little pin cushion. So easy, now I just have to make one that I get to keep.

I need a friend like me - one I can give material to and she'll just whip up cute little projects for me.


  1. so cute! or should i say "sew" cute? where did you find the pattern for this or did you make it up? i am still using a pin cushion that was given to me when i was a kid, bought in san francisco's china town, i think!
