Free pincushion pattern

Heather Bailey has a fancy new website, and to kick things off, she's generously offering a free pincushion pattern you can download. If you'd like to make a little reupholstered tape measure to go along with that, check out this tutorial from A Spoonful of Sugar.

that picture in the upper left with the orange rug and chair by the window! I need that rug! But can you send me a better picture of it so I can really see what it looks like? Thanks so much!

that is one adorable pin cushion... I'd almost feel bad sticking pins in it!

Very cute! I actually bookmarked that pincushion tutorial a long time ago, just didn't have the time to make it. Have to do it soon, and cross it off my long to-make list. Thanks for reminding me.
Oh, that tape measure cover thing is very cute. Just wonder how I am going to find it in a stash of fabric. I guess you can call it invisible tape. :o)

I've made several of these and I have a photo of them on my blogsite... I also am now making them in wools from thrift shop sweaters... they are turning out so cute!

I already downloaded it and can hardly wait to make it, after I make Heather's yoga bag!

Thanks for the link! I have made some of those pincushions - now I need to make a co-ordinated set!!

Better Homes & Garden's Australia featured this on their site but I see HB has said to download this one as it's got the proper measurements and sizings. Thanks for the heads up.

How neat that her website design coordinates so perfectly with the pincushion. Did she plan it that way? :o)

I'm gonna have to try that tutorial. My little tomato pincushion is spilling sand in my sewing box...

Thanks!

Hah, I just got through reading a magazine article on Heather Bailey. This is a cute project to try.
