Cindy taught us how to make these beautiful pin cushions. A photo will never convey what it is like to hold one in your hand. The cushion fits right in the palm of your hand. The silk velvet and the weight of the Turkish emery inside makes the cushion feel interestingly alive.
Here are mine. The finished cushion is one that Cindy made for me. The other is my work-in-progress.
Cindy wrote about Turkish emery and these pin cushions over on her blog.
