My Etsy Shop!

One of my favorite places to look for more crafting ideas is Pine Needles at Gardner Village.  I have recently become obsessed with their pin cushion patterns.

I have also been working on a few unfinished projects, and noticed that I always tend to drop pins, and I do not like toting my pin box around with me from the sewing machine, to the large kitchen table, to the iron.  I then remembered my Mom has a wrist pin cushion.  The thing is, the band is plastic, and is tight on my wrist.  So I googled patterns for a fabric wrist pin cushion.  I didn't find anything.  I had to find a pattern for a cuff and a pattern for a pin cushion.  Only, the pin cushions I found were much too big for a wrist. 

So what did I do?

I designed my own wrist pin cushion!  I wanted to see if anyone else had thought of it, so I looked on Etsy.  People are selling the actual items, but there are only two shops that sell patterns.  I personally think that mine is oh so much cuter and unique, so I typed up instructions, took some pictures of my pin cushion, and made a pattern.  It is now listed on my Etsy shop!
