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. If you have any questions about this pattern, please contact me at I invite you to follow me on Facebook at BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Quilt SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 4" or 6"

I love to create whimsical designs in fabric and embroidery. Never content with working on just one project, I always have several on the go at one time. My two furry assistants, Teeka and Charlie, help me in my studio. When I'm not creating patterns, you can find me in front of the camera filming new videos for my Youtube channel and online classes ( As a Janome artisan you can find videos on their various products there as well.
