Perfectly Pleasing Pin Cushion Parade 2016



My Sister Made Me Do It blog is hosting a pin cushion link up and I’m joining in.  

The one on the left is the one I use the most. It’s so full of pins that it’s hard to tell that it is a cross stitch sampler. The alphabet is under all the yellow pins. I made it in 1996. The wheat pin cushion is one I made in 1997 and I think I made the bird biscornou in 2012.



This "Elegant Emery" is a scissor fob and pin cushion in one.



This set was from a Susan Greening Davis weekend in Myrtle Beach.  She always has great projects for her get-aways.



This pin ball is filled with wool and I've done a strawberry pattern with rice stitches.



This is a little mattress pin cushion in a fold over that also holds scissors, needles, and a tape measure.



This Christmas tree biscornu can be used as an ornament or as a pin cushion.  I put lavender in it so make it smell good.



I made this oak biscornu and gave it as a gift.



This is the hexagon pin cushion.



These aren’t “cushions”, but hold pins so I consider them as the same thing as pin cushions.  I think they are even better than pin cushions because they are compact and can easily be carried along without getting stuck with the pins.  My favorite is the heart, made in 1996.

You can check out the entire parade of pin cushions here.

  2. You have an impressive collection of cushions and holds for your pins.
    I find that of the ones I have I use the magnetic disc and the 'Chinese tangerine' with its styrofoam filling most of the time. The pretty ones are sleeping!

  9. You have quite a collection!. I have never made a pincushion. I have about 5 of those typical tomato pincushions. One for each needle craft I guess. Think I'll check out the link.
