This is a very quick and easy pincushion to make. A simple diamond shape (template included) of any size will make a pincushion. Embellishment opportunities are endless - try different trims, buttons, beads, embroidery, different fabrics.
Additional pictures show a smaller pincushion, made from a smaller diamond shape. I glued a large button on the bottom to stabilize it, and you could also do that for the larger Chenille Pincushion.

I'm fascinated with all things textile. I sew, quilt, felt, embroider, knit, crochet - almost everything except tatting, which I don't know how to do. I also love to design! I'm married to the best husband in the world, and together we have 7 children, and 18 grandchildren.
I was born sewing. Pretty much, I started sewing my own clothes when I was 9 yrs old, and now I'm over 50. Then I started designing, and writing quilt patterns. I have published one Quilt Book called Log Cabin Quilts: A Brand New Story by Karen Murphy. You can still buy it on Amazon. Yes, Karen Murphy. As soon as it was published, I got married! So much for all that name recognition! We live in Joplin, MO, where thankfully, the tornado of May 2011 missed us. I also have a job (I still work at home though) as Editor of The Quilt Pattern Magazine. It's online (we save trees) and focus on Quilt Patterns! I love all my work, and could happily give up all housecleaning and cooking in order to keep working. Some might say that I have. They might be right. But I do try to keep the dust bunnies corralled as best I can.
