Last fall I saw some absolutely adorable pin cushions at the Houston show, but I remained strong and didn't buy the pattern to make one. However, last month when I was in Phoenix and went to a sewing expo there, the same company was showing the pin cushions again. How could I resist? I mean, wasn't it meant to be? I didn't buy the pattern, though; I bought the kit in order to make life easy. I also bought a second little cup for the bottom, and I'm thinking I'm going to be making a second one of these very soon -- though I'll have to go look for the rest of the materials.

So what kind of pin cushion am I talking about? A cupcake! Isn't it cute? :) Sorry the photo is a little fuzzy, but you get the idea.
The pattern is called With a Cherry on Top. I'm beginning to think I have a pin cushion fetish. ;)


  1. So cute! My girlfriend bought a kit for these at a local sewing and craft show. The kit was so cute packaged in a bakery box.

  2. That is so cute!, I have pictures of some owl pincushions I made for my quild to sell at a fund raiser. 13 pair. see them at: I also have a crazy quilt pincusion posted in March 2010.

  3. Susan, those owls are cute — they're identical to the one my sister made me a few years ago (look at Mine was such a hit at my local group that we all made them. :)


I really enjoy seeing comments and read them all, so please feel free to post here.
