My new pincushion!

Look at the new pincushion I made this week. I really didn't need one, but I just love pincushions! I got the pattern and fabric when I was out at my mom's a few weeks ago! And aren't the pins cute! I got those at the Chicago quilt show.
UPDATE - I meant to do this last night in the post but forgot. Sorry.
The pincushion pattern is by Miss Rosie's! It is called Fruit Salad Pincushions!
The pins are by Just Another Button Company - and they are called Just Pins!

I also worked on some chemo hats. A friend of my sisters has a friend who has a little girl with cancer. She wanted some fun hats to wear but all the "hats" were the same as the other little girls wear to the hospital. So I took one those and ripped it apart to figure out how to make them! They look big though. I don't know why, I used the one they bought as the pattern pieces, so we will see. If nothing else they fit Pooh well!

Love the little pincushion! I saw a pattern like that in a magazine at the store, but didn't buy it... May have to go back to get it! Yours turned out so cute! And love the pins, too! :o)

Oh, I do like the watermelon pincushion. And the pins are cute, cute. I have never purchased any of those but have thought about it more than once.
Can you tell us who the pattern designer is for the watermelon?

I love pincushions too and I just picked up that pattern. Now I want to get cracking on it after seeing yours. Are you going to make the strawberry that was included in the pattern? My quilt shop had a little kit put together with the cutest little seed beads for the watermelon. How could I resist.

Those chemo hats are wonderful too.

Your pincushion is so cute. I have that pattern so perhaps I should make one too.......some day LOL.
I am sure the little girl will love the hats. You have chosen such cute fabrics. And how fun it will be for her to have something different.
