Two of my favourite things

After making my last pin cushion, I couldn’t help but think that I really do have room for a whole nest of pin cushions.

This design has been swirling in my mind for a little time now, but I’ve had other things to finish first. I wanted to combine granny squares, easily my favourite thing, with pin cushions.

She is made from Rowan 4ply Cotton Yarn, using a 3mm hook.

I made the flower up myself. I’m not sure, do you like it?

Cushion_7sml

I guess maybe it would work without a flower too, but really, any excuse to add some buttons!

When it was time to stuff her, I realised we had a problem. Granny squares do tend to allow for that age old problem, stuffing-ooze. So, a little cotton undergarment was in order.

I hope you like her 🙂

  1. love love love! the flower is perfect, i havent seen one quite like it. I still have the pattern for your other pinscushion, but haven’t got a chance to work on it yet. There’s never enough time, is there?!

    • Thanks very much for your lovely comment 😀 I know, there is NEVER enough time. And the thing I find is the more I make the more ideas I have and the more I want to make and then there is even less time.

  2. Nanna and I love the pincushion. The flower is great. Very clever. Love the button. So cute.
