Cupcake pincushion

This is one of the new patterns that I recently purchased! I bought this little pincushion kit from Portabellopixie website. It came with the materials to make the pincushion and the pattern. I absolutely love this little pincushion! The instruction booklet that came with this pattern is phenomenal! It is a 20 page full color booklet with pictures and illustrations for every step of the way making this pincushion.
My dd was really excited watching me make this. She couldn't wait for me to be done with it. As a matter of fact.....I haven't got to hold it since I finished it! This was a fun little project that took me about 2 hours (with lots of distractions) start to finish. The pattern comes in two sizes, a "high calorie" size and a "low calorie" size. The kit had the supplies for the low calorie size. I could definitely see making the "high calorie" size too. Especially since I am not sure when I am going to get this back!! What a great gift for fellow seamstresses too!

I've seen these for several years and always think they look SO cute, but I've never gotten around to buying the pattern. I might have to go ahead, this is pretty adorable. Too bad I don't use pincushions and don't know anyone else (IRL) who sews. Uh. I guess that's why I never bought the pattern.
