Pin Pouf Pattern Giveaway

My first PDF sewing pattern is now available in my Etsy shop! It's a pin cushion pattern called The Pin Pouf, and to celebrate, I'm giving away a copy to one lucky reader. I'll also send you some American Jane fabric that's long out of print to make your own pin cushion. Classic red, white, and blue.
Now a little bit about The Pin Pouf. While this pin cushion is great for any sewist, I designed it with the quilter in mind. Here's why:
  • it's thick! At 2" deep, it's perfect for long quilting pins and there's no risk of being stabbed from underneath.

  • it's big! This 3.5" square provides plenty of space for lots of pins. It's not so big, though, that it takes up your entire sewing space.

  • it's flat on the bottom! This baby stays put, making it easy to get pins in and out without fuss.
  • it's made with quilting techniques! Quilter's will recognize strip piecing, chain stitching, and matching seams.

    To enter the drawing, leave me a comment describing your current pin cushion. Leave another comment if you follow my blog for a second chance to win. I'll select a winner via Random Generator on Monday, June 20th.
    Good luck!

    And if by chance you'd like to buy the pattern, it's available at http:www.minimushroom.etsty.com ;-)


    1. My current pin cushion is a nice little wrist one the I purchased on Etsy. At my other machine, I have one of those Big Giant pin cushions that I made, using walnut shells inside.

      This one of yours would be an intermediate size for me, besides it being so pretty.

    2. I'm currently using a round dollar store kitchen sponge set into a clear, round plastic food container. FUGLY! I SO want a pincushion. This one would be lovely for me. Or ... one of these days I'll just have to bite the bullet and make one.

    3. I've been a follower via Google Reader but today I clicked on the "follow" button on your blog.

    4. My pin cushion is a generic tomato, lol. This is an adorable pin cushion. Great work!

    5. I am following your blog now as well:)

    6. This is gorgeous!
      At the moment I'm using a magnetic pin dish!!

    7. Congratulations on publishing your first pattern! My current pin cushion in my ironing board. Truly pathetic.
