Kara

Thanks Jenn!!!! I love it too! Like I said in my post, I made one for me as soon as I parted with the one I made for Johanna.

ipanda

Thank you! It 's adorable :) I like it....

Kara

You're welcome Ipanda!

Claudine

Very cute!

Kara

Thanks Claudine!

Couldn't you wrap some shredded brillo pads (the ones without the soap) in polyfill to sharpen your pins if you create the tomato/strawberry all on your own?

Kara

That's a great idea Wendyloohoo! You can buy emery to put in the strawberry but you'd have to put it in a little fabric pouch first and that seemed like too much work. I like your idea much better!!

Rachel

Aww, this is darling. I just clicked over from CraftGossip and I'm so glad I did. What a lovely project. I would love to link to this pattern if you didn't mind.

Kara

Thanks Rachel. Feel free to link the pattern. I love One Pretty Thing! Take care. Kara

Heather - Dollar Store Crafts

Aww, so cute. Found it via One Pretty THing! :)

Pam

Love this pattern, but what does it mean sc in Magic ring? I didn't see where the base chain was in the pattern.

Marjorie Wilhelm

Kara, this is really cute! I'll make one, for sure.
Ground walnut hulls make a good filling for pincushions, heavy enough to stay put, but pins go in easily. I think you can get them at the pet store, especially where they sell bird supplies. (Fred tells me they are also used for sandblasting!)

Kara

Hi Pam. You can also start by Chaining 2, then making 6 sc (or however many sc you need) in the 2nd sc from hook. Sorry for the confusion. Kara

Kara

Thanks Marjorie (mom!).

Christine

I just finished crocheting my daughter's Build-a-bear blanket. Now I need a new project. This will work. Too cute! Thank you for a great pattern.

Kara

You're welcome Christine. Hope you enjoy making the pincushion.

Kara

Thanks Heather!

Heather

You are amazing - I love it!! My Mum has that pincushion :o)
(hope you're feeling better) xxxx

Kara

Thanks Heather! Hope all is well in the sticks. I'll send you a proper email soon.
