A pin cushion is a very easy project to sew. When I chose my fabric for my sewing machine cover, I realized that the pink fabric strongly resembled strawberry fluff. What better choice than to make it look like a pie complete with the Emery Pin saver on top. I really like that it is wider than a lot of pin cushions you can purchase. The flat low profile keeps it from toppling over and sliding on my work surface. Not to mention it's pretty with my cover. I keep my small cutting scissors and my seam ripper tucked underneath the strawberry so they are always handy. I have a quick pattern you can download below. The instructions are very basic and you can alter the size as well as the colors. I hope you enjoy the pattern, pass on what you learn and are generous with what you make. Someone will appreciate your hard work.
