I was looking for a small gift that I could make for one of my good friend as a thank you gift for all her kindnesses. She had told me at one point in time that she did not have any pincushions and I thought that she would probably enjoy getting something like that.

I remembered having seen that lovely pincushion in one of the Australian Inspirations magazine, more precisely the #50 issue, pages 74 to 79.
I was also able to find a link where there was a wonderful steps-by-steps instructions explaining very clearly how to make this pumpkin shape, so if anyone else is interested in creating something similar to mine, that should make things easier for them. Here is the link for that tutorial .

I was also told by Margaret H. that there is also another free tutorial which is a lovely Periwinkle pincushion designed by Jan Kerton .

I have just received a message from my friend today letting me know that she had just received it and absolutely adores it :-)

Happy pincushion making, everybody!
