Pattern Description:

This cute little pincushion will allow you to add as many - or as few - embellishments as you wish. Love yo-yos? You can add them to this project. Have lots of funky buttons? They would look great on top of those yo-yos, or just added by themselves.

Complete step-by-step instructions are included to create two sizes of this pinwheel pincushion, but that's only the start. Information to embellish the pincushion with yo-yos, buttons or hand embroidery are also provided. 3 applique shapes are included in the pattern should you wish to add these to the pincushion.

This pattern is also great for a hanging ornament, a shelf sitter or a basket stuffer - the choice is yours.
