Pincushions that make me smile

Since Amanda Jean from Crazy Mom Quilts is sharing her amazing pin cushion collection, I thought I would show you one of mine.

I made this little fella when I bought this book a couple of years ago.

He's made from a man's shirt sleeve cuff. I couldn't resist making the happy little face. Although you can't see them very well, the ears are some funky buttons I had on hand.

And this pincushion is my all time favorite.

I used the selvages from the Anna Griffin fabric after I made a quilt for my daughter. I use this pin cushion every time I sew.

How about you? Do you have a favorite pin cushion? 

Happy Quilting!
