Pretty pinnies, poppets, and pincushions—Pin Pals is here! (+ big giveaway!)

We’re bursting-at-the-seams excited to introduce best-selling author Carrie Nelson’s new book to you today! Her projects are pretty. They’re playful. They’re pinnies!

Pin Pals

In Pin Pals, Carrie’s packed 40 adorable pincushions with personality. Her patchwork pinnies are quick to stitch and so addicting to create—they’re like potato chips. No quilter can make just one! And why make just one when they’re so easy to create? Simply sew, quilt, turn, and stuff!

From Pin Pals

Super-quick to sew and delightful to display, you can show off the pincushions you make as singles or in pleasing piles. You’ll want to put a pin in Carrie’s philosophy behind making her delightful pincushions: to sew just for the joy of it.

Pincushions from Pin Pals

We’re thrilled to welcome Carrie as a guest writer today, here to tell you about her pinnie obsession. Take it away, Carrie!


Carrie NelsonHi! My name is Carrie and I might have a pincushion problem. My shelves and cubbies runneth over with these little creations . . . but I can’t stop myself from saving ever-smaller scraps for pincushions that I use primarily for decorative purposes. So maybe I don’t have a problem so much as a passion—for making things.

Churn Dash pincushions
Like Butter

But why pincushions? Or pinnies—that’s what I’ve always called them. The whole story is in the book, but it comes down to making something just for fun. I’ve probably made almost two hundred pincushions over the years and, while I keep a few, I give most away. (They do make terrific gifts.)

Random Strips pincushions

There are a couple of things I want to share about making pinnies—and about me.

First, I think perfection is highly overrated. While I will always strive to do my best work, I also love the human touch that comes from mismatched points, wonky seams, and less-than-perfect quilting.

Side Steps pincushion
Side Steps—Carrie accidentally poked a hole in the corner of this pincushion. No worries—she darned the corner and her pincushion and the mend added a whole new charm.

Pin Pals pincushionPinnie expert? Not me. Everything I’ve included is simply what works for me. I experiment, I learn, I try again. Like when it comes to quilting the pinnies—I like the way a quilted pincushion looks. I quilt them with two layers only—just the pieced top and some batting. The pinnie doesn’t need a backing layer, and I’ve found that machine quilting with the batting on bottom has worked nicely with every batting I’ve tried.

If you’re a little worried about all the small pieces—don’t be! Been there, felt that! I’d get this idea . . . draw it out . . . calculate the cutting sizes . . . and think “I must be crazy.” Then I’d start cutting and sewing, and it turned out better than I would have guessed. It will be the same for you—I promise!

All those “rules” you learned about quilting? Forget at least half of them. Then ignore the rest. This is a pincushion. It won’t be washed, stretched, or dragged through the yard—unless you have critters.

Coveting thy neighbor’s scraps? It will happen. I suggest offering to trade—or to make two pinnies, one of which you’ll give to the source of the coveted scraps.

Pink Half-Square Triangles pincushion
Pink Half-Square Triangles: Carrie made adorable use of leftover fabrics from a quilt made by
Lissa Alexander.

Supplies? While I share some of my favorite threads, pins, and tools in the book, use what you have. The backing and batting scraps left from trimming quilts can be used for pinnies—and the batting can be torn into little bits to use for stuffing. Or if, like me, you prefer to fill pincushions with crushed walnut shells, they’re easily found at any pet store in the reptile section. To get the shells into the pinnie, I borrow a funnel, a ½-cup measuring cup, and a jelly-roll pan (to catch any spills) from my kitchen.

Pin Pals

I hope you have as much fun making these pin pals as I did. I hope you’ll feel free to change things and make yours different. And if you find yourself making more pinnies than you’ll ever need or use . . . Hi, my name is Carrie. It’s nice to meet you—we’re meant to be friends.

    —Carol A LaPorte on November 16, 2018
  • I’ve made a couple of Carrie’s pincushions. One was her chicken from way back when, which was a gift. The other is from another of her early pincushion patterns and it is mostly decorative, although it holds a few pins. Also designed a small one to match a quilt I made with my cousins to gift to a family member who was ill. They are truly fun and addictive! Thanks for the chance to win some Carrie goodness!!

    —Karen S on November 16, 2018

  • What a fun book! I’ve only made a couple pin cushions but I have a long list of pincushion patterns to make. I use a few different kinds of pins and each kind has their own pincushion. If I ever get my list made, most will simply be eye candy- I doubt there are that many kinds of pins!

    —Amy Mills on November 16, 2018
  • I have not made any pincushions,yet,I decorate with them. I’m very excited about this book!

    —Jayne on November 16, 2018

    —nancy jo on November 16, 2018
  • I have made several pin cushions. Gave many as gifts to sewing and quilting friends. I have pieced and appliqued pin cushions and made them from cotton, wool, and combinations of these. Pin cushions are fun and quick to make. I would enjoy making some of the designs from Carrie’s new book!

    —Sharon on November 16, 2018

    —Kelley on November 16, 2018

  • Both I use them as pincushions and decor.

    —Janie McCombs on November 16, 2018
  • I remember making a pin cushion with my sister from fabric scraps. It is right next to my sewing machine and I think of my sister and that special time every day. Pin cushions are a wonderful way to make and share memories.

    —Sharon Day on November 16, 2018
  • I have not made my own pincushions yet, but I have several that friends have given me. They are beautiful and very decorative and useful on my sewing machine cabinet.

    —Barbara Nielson on November 16, 2018
  • Last year for Christmas, I made all of my sisters (and my sister-in-law) pincushions that were crocheted with my late mother’s crochet thread and inner lined with her quilting fabrics. Quilting and crocheting together – a match made in heaven! I love, love, love these little beauties and will absolutely be making many (all?) of them! Thanks, Carrie, for such inspiration!

    —Celene on November 16, 2018
  • I made one years ago; however after reading this post I think I need to make a lot more. I’ve been fortunate to have a few pincushions as gifts. I use them for their intended purpose and for decoration. Carrie is an inspiration.

    —Dorothy Carter on November 16, 2018
  • I have never made a pin cushion…These are all adorable! Thanks for the chance to win!

    —Kathy Timmons on November 16, 2018
  • I LOVE to make pinnies. I use them a lot. All my projects have their own pinnie in the box/bag. They help me organise my needles, thread and pins ofcourse!
    Good luck with your new fantastic book Carrie!

    —Margo Kool on November 16, 2018
  • I have made many pincushions. They are next to every sewing machine, on my cutting table, and attached to my ironing board. I love making pincushions as it is a fun quick project that is useful.

    —Johanna on November 16, 2018
  • Hi! My name is Trudy and I think we might have to become friends. The pinnies look fantastic and fun to make. I think I could become very addicted to making these fun and useful fabric users. Making some for special occasions like Valentine’s Day, Christmas,mother’s day or just to include with a quilt I have made. Great idea!

    —Trudy Adamek on November 16, 2018
  • I’ve made a few pincushions and would love to make some more!

    —Joan K on November 16, 2018
  • Love, love pincushions!

    —April Lopez on November 16, 2018
  • I am a pincushion addict also. I would really love this gift to add to my collection.

    —Donna Schalge on November 16, 2018
  • I have only made pin cushions for myself, and they have only been functional, not pretty or cute. For example stuffing an old baby sock and putting it in a votive holder as a stand. I am a quilter and after seeing today’s post I have not only been inspired bu I have also found a new purpose for tiny scraps! THANK YOU!!!

    —Nikki Gordon on November 16, 2018
  • Yes I like making pincushions, usually make them in wool

    —Mary on November 16, 2018
  • I think I LOVE pincushions as much as Carrie! I have them all over my house-everywhere I might possibly sew. I use them and also decorate with them. Such a wonderful idea book and a great giveaway!

    —Debra Miller on November 16, 2018
  • Making pin cushions is definitely an addiction. All of mine are 6″ or less. Almost all are hand pieced and hand quilted because I love handwork, because they are quick and easy, and because the end result is so satisfactory! Found they are a great way to use mini-charm packs (other than dolly quilts! another addiction!!).

    —Marlene Clausen on November 16, 2018
  • Yes I have made pin cushions in the past. My favorite was a paper pieced pineapple block – I attached a fabric trash holder to it. I have only made pin cushions to use.

    —Linda Ferguson on November 16, 2018
  • Love the book. I have made some and they are always fun. Mine have held fancy pins, small scissors and clips. Very useful. Thanks for the chance.

    —Anne Burden on November 16, 2018
  • Started one… not quite finished! Would love the chance to win this beautiful inspiring book and get er done! Thanks!

    —Kerry Linklater on November 16, 2018
  • I’ve not made pincushions before, but my sister gave me one she filled with pine needles for Acadia National Park. It was a lovely sachet! And, I also bought the tiniest log cabin square with a pin on the back. It’s lovely to wear as an accessory.

    —Marcia Pusey on November 16, 2018
  • This an awesome giveaway. I use pin cushions but have never made any. I have lots of scraps that I can turn into pin cushions. Hope luck shines on me and I win. Thanks for the giveaways.

    —Barbara on November 16, 2018
  • I don’t make pincushions, my sister does. I think we could do this together, Thanks

    —Carol Nelms on November 16, 2018
  • I’ve made several. I created one that was the classic chicken pincushion with a fried egg for the emery pin sharpener. Would love to own this book.

    —Gina Snyder on November 16, 2018
  • I make, use and display in my sewing room all the pinkeeps. I love making them…

    —LuAnn Dekker on November 16, 2018
  • I make and collect pincushions. I use 3-5 in my sewing room, so there is always one within reach. I’ve made stick pins to decorate some. Thank you for the giveaway. It’s awesome!

    —Mary Ellen on November 16, 2018
  • I have never made a pin cushion but these are so charming that I think I need to start!

    —Jenn on November 16, 2018
  • I have made pincushions before and I do use them. Of course I have two favorites. But they are fun and this new book looks so inspiring! Thanks.

    Jocelyn on November 16, 2018
  • I made two last year to donate to my quilt guild’s boutique at the quilt show. Thanks for the chance to win!

    —Kristin Spiess on November 16, 2018
  • I have made pin cushions. At one of my quilt retreats, we each bring a pin cushion we made. Play bingo and the winner gets to choose a wrapped pin cushion. When others win they may choose a wrapped pin cushion or take one they like from someone else.

    sherry moses on November 16, 2018
  • I have made a couple of pincushions as gifts. I would LOVE a copy of Carrie’s book! Thanks for the chance.

    —Becky S on November 16, 2018
  • I love the thought of these as gifts. Plus the bonus of using my extra fabrics.

    —Donna Viar on November 16, 2018
  • I’ve never made a pincushion before, but these pictures sure inspire me to start! I think I’d make them all and display them on a special shelf I have by our entrance. What fun!

    —Lisa A. on November 16, 2018
  • I just looked at my collection of saved scraps and this would be the perfect use of my stash! Really looking forward to seeing the many possibility ties! Oh I have all those batting scraps to use up too!

    —Karen on November 16, 2018
  • How exciting. Can’t wait to see this book. We have a group that does pincushion exchanges. I not only make pincushions but I use them and put them in bowls for decorations.

    —Sue Bennett on November 16, 2018
  • Great idea for a book. I can’t wait to get the book and get busy making “pins”.

    —Sara Blackburn on November 16, 2018
  • I made a few stuffed pumpkins this fall – they would make really cute pin cushions!

    —Nicole Worthington on November 16, 2018
  • I love small projects. Who can resist an adorable little pin cushion!

    —Sharon on November 16, 2018
  • I have used an old (1970’s) tomato with the strawberry attached pin cushion for years. Not having enough time in between sewing flag corps,Spring Musical,Madrigals,Prom, Homecoming,etc. costumes for years while the kids grew up (5), I finally had the time to make a chicken pincushion with one of our granddaughters. We had such fun and it turned out real cute. I quilt more than I sew at this time. Now that we have moved again with husband’s job and find ourselves retired and far from the kids I have a bit more time. Carrie’s book has a bounty of pin cushions to make and give away and save some that I probably couldn’t part with. Such good ideas!!

    —Pamela Zajicek on November 16, 2018
  • Have to jump on this pincushion bandwagon. Working with such tiny pieces seems to be a challenge but need to stretch my quilting boundaries. Have made very simple pincushions but filled them with fresh lavender buds for sachets for Xmas gifts.

    —Deb S on November 16, 2018
  • I’ve made one pin cushion, a turtle, and I do use it as a pin cushion. I love Carrie’s ideas and would love to try them out. Thank you!

    —Judy on November 16, 2018
  • Everyone needs another pin cushion. These designs are great! I keep my needles and pins on separate cushions.

    —Judy on November 16, 2018
  • Hi! My name is Carole!It is great to meet you! We have so much in common!I am also a pinnie addict.I even enter pinnies in our county fair in the miniature pillow division!And covet scraps, yes indeed!I use them for pin cushions and home decor. So glad to know I have friends that share my passion!

    —Carole Spady on November 16, 2018
  • What cute and fun projects! I would love to be entered into the drawing to get the Giveaway package. Thanks!

    —Marla Harrison, P. E. on November 16, 2018
  • Yes, I have made pincushions before: for Mother and 3 sisters with a ribbon and small scissors attached, for my 8 sewing buddies who sew together every Monday, and for my daughter, who is as crazy about sewing as I am!!!

    —Sandi Henderson on November 16, 2018
  • After meeting Carrie at Quiltstock 2018, I would love receiving this valued prize. I’ve made several different kinds of pin cushions. Some I’ve given as gifts, others I use while others are just decorations that I love looking at.

    —Diana Jacobson on November 16, 2018
  • No, I haven’t sewed pincushions yet, but this book is making me want to start!

    —Sharon Askew on November 16, 2018
  • I have never made a pin cushion before but I love all the ideas!

    —Pam Kosirog on November 16, 2018
  • I made a pincushion in my first quilting class done by an expat in Bolivia. I still have it and use it for my pins by my sewing machine. It’s faded but still reminds me of my first experience with quilting. This book looks like sew much fun 🙂

    —Shines on November 16, 2018
  • So many cute ideas – will be hard to decide which to make first.

    —Karen K on November 16, 2018
  • I’ve only made one pincushion, one of those triangular chickens- fun! I use it to decorate my sewing room.

    —Dottie MACOMBER on November 16, 2018
  • I’ve made quite a few pincushions for gifts over the years. I’ve received many as gifts as well. I love the designs in Carrie’s book. Makes me think I need to make more just for fun!

    —Becky Coykendall on November 16, 2018
  • I love pin cushions and have been making them for years. I use cotton, wool, flannel – whatever I’ve been sewing with, and they are real treasures to remind me of quilts I’ve made.

    —Nancy on November 16, 2018
  • Have not made a pincushion before, these are adorable and will look so cute in my sewing/quilting room. They will make great gifts.

    Susan Johnson on November 16, 2018
  • i have made many, many pin cushions. they are so much fun and i love giving them to my friends and family. i use the crushed walnut shells for filling and i have them all over my sewing room and in baskets.

    —Carolyn Montgomery on November 16, 2018
  • I have made a pincushion which I use for pins and a few sewing needles. I bought 2 vintage sewing baskets which I want to fill with all kinds of pin cushions. Carrie’s pincushions, her book, the Moda mini charms, and Aurifil thread would surely get me started!

    —Kaye Walker on November 16, 2018
  • I’ve only made one so far, but want to make more.

    —Donna Thomas on November 16, 2018
  • Love these.pincushions! I have never made one before, but I have been gifted one by my sister and I use it every time I sew. My sister lives in Oklahoma while I am in Minnesota so every time I use the pincushion, it reminds me of my sister.

    —Shirleyknieper on November 16, 2018
  • In Home Economics one sewing project was to make a small pocket, inserting a SOS pad. These are charming spots of color like a pillow hit with the incredible shrinking ray! LOL!

  • Yes, I have made pincushions before, but until I read Carrie’s comments I did not think they were good enough to give away! Result: too many for me to use! Must try harder! And be less of a perfectionist!

    —Helen on November 16, 2018
  • I haven’t made any pin cushions, but it’s a good idea to use up scraps.

    —Judy Thompson on November 16, 2018
  • I have made 2 pincushions, one as a gift and one for myself that I use to hold sewing needles. I love Carrie’s designs!

    —Carol Schein on November 16, 2018

    —Margene on November 16, 2018
  • Have made several of Carrie’s quilts but not pinnies. Love the idea of using favorite scraps and pinnies would make wonderful gifts for my quilty friends.

    —Lisa Clark on November 16, 2018
  • Oooh, how darling! I’ve made pinkies before but very utilitarian ones stuck full of my pin accumulation. These are SO CUTE. I have bags n’ bags of scraps and this might dent them a little. Thank you for the chance to ein this ab fab prize.

    —Theresa Leppert on November 16, 2018
  • With Christmas around the corner, what better way to give friends
    and family a Pincushion. You never have enough. I am forever looking
    around my quilt room for a Pincushion. This would be perfect.

    —Evelyn on November 16, 2018
  • I love these! I like working with small projects, the challenge of small pieces I guess. I have made some pin cushions and given them away, but not like these. they are so CUTE!

    —Melissa Jefferys on November 16, 2018
  • I love pincushions, too, although I haven’t made nearly as many as Carrie! I like to display them in a handmade wooden dough bowl, although there are too many now to fit at one time. Love to give them as gifts to my quilty friends. This book looks really sweet!

    —Terri Karasch on November 16, 2018
  • I’ve made a couple: a quilty one and a blue felt narwhal, and I use both for pins, although the narwhal is mostly just cute. 🙂

    They are so much fun to make and I love using scraps from quilts to remind me of quilts that I have made. Thanks for the contest .

    —Polly Mertz on November 16, 2018
  • I love pincushions, I always have I decorate with them on the shelves above my quilt racks. I have recently subscribed to a handmade pin club and am so enjoying using them in my pincushion collection. I usually make small pincushions to add with my quilted gifts.

    —Mulvey Rita on November 16, 2018
  • I have made two pincushions, one as a gift and one for myself that I use for my needles. Love Carrie’s pincushions!

    —Diane Coble on November 16, 2018

    —ELIZABETH KUNTZ on November 16, 2018

    —Barbara Schiller on November 16, 2018

    —Judyk on November 16, 2018
  • I have never made a pincushion. But these are just SO darned cute!!! 😉

    I’m already thinking of several to make for my sewing friends. Hmmm…is there enough time before Christmas? 🤔

    —Margaret Peterson on November 16, 2018
  • I have made a few. I absolutely adore yours. So many different patterns. Just cunning💕

    —Martha Cook on November 16, 2018
  • I LOVE pin cushions and have made several, filling with ground walnut shells. Besides using for pins, they make great weights to place on the fabric cutting table…keeps a loose end from falling to the floor. For obsessive pin cushion makers- 25 lb. boxes of the ground shells can be found at Harbor Freight Tools. Use a coupon for even more savings! I would love this book, a new source for so much fun!

    —Kathie Curley on November 16, 2018
  • Oh, I love to make pincushions! I use them myself for pins, and give them away left and right! (I love making them so much that it’s frequently hard to stop! This book looks like it was made just for me!)

    —gayle m on November 16, 2018
  • I’ve never made a pin cushion. What a great gift idea before Christmas.

    —Amy W on November 16, 2018
  • I have made a number of pincushions before, both for myself and as gifts. They are a fun gift to give because they are both decorative and useful.

    —Deborah on November 16, 2018
  • I LOVE making pin cushions and make them a lot. I especially love giving them as little gifts to my quilting and sewing friends. I even have made some and stuck them away for my granddaughter for her future sewing. Getting a whole book of different pin cushions would be a dream come true. Love all of those that I am seeing in the book. How fun.

    —Lynda Treen on November 16, 2018
  • I love these mini-pinnies. Totally open to getting obsessed 🤩

    —Tess on November 16, 2018
  • I have made a few pincushions–I use them for holding pins and for decorating!

    —Carmel Hines on November 16, 2018
  • Years ago, I made pincushions for the Santa Shoppe at my children’s school. But they weren’t nearly as cute as Carrie’s! Now I want to go and make some just for me!

    —Barbara Johnson on November 16, 2018
  • I have made pin cushions in two projects: on thread catchers (yes, used for pins) and the triangular chickens (used for decoration). Carrie’s pin cushions look amazing. They sound like fun to make and share!

    —Vicky on November 16, 2018
  • I’ve made many pincushions over the years, both for gifts and for decorating as "bowl fillers." There are so many cute pinnies in this book… I especially love the plus sign ones!

    —Robin McGuire on November 16, 2018
  • I have made a few as gifts and for myself. I do use mine. Yours are just adorable.

    —Martha Cook on November 16, 2018
  • I haven’t made any pin cushions…but I need to, and what a great way to start!

    —stephanie box on November 16, 2018
  • I have made pincushions… I love making pincushions. They are a quick and easy way to sample fabric collections. I use some of them as pincushions, others are decoration and many have been gifts.

    —Tracy Swan on November 16, 2018
  • I use my pincushions. I have them in every room and always need more. The cute ones are my favorites because I don’t mind leaving them laying around. This is a wonderful looking book.

    —Diann Gathright on November 16, 2018
  • I have made dozens of pincushions for myself, friends, and family. They make such cute quick gifts, and they are an excellent way to try a new pattern in miniature to decide on the colors I want to make into a full size quilt, as well as a chance to try a new design before committing myself to a huge project that I may or may not enjoy after repeating the same design over and over. There’s just something so cheerful and comforting about a pincushion. They are like dear friends who are always sitting near by waiting to help with any project that I want to make. They inspire me daily! For myself personally, I have unique pincushions in several rooms of my house, plus in a project-to-go-bag that waits by my front door; so I am ready for every sewing opportunity, even on the road (when someone else is driving, of course). Lol! I adore making pincushions! (I especially adore making anything in miniature.) My one rule is that I never make the same pattern in the same fabrics twice. I love variety best of all, especially sampling new designs and luscious new fabrics. This new book that is entirely about pincushions is totally awesome and unique! It makes me wonder why no one has ever thought of this idea before. Pincushions are such a practical use for leftover fabrics from other projects or to try new fabrics together for the first time. The always beautiful Moda fabrics are the perfect companion for the gorgeous mini projects in this book. So, so beautiful!!! What a creative idea! I am so envious of all of those new (eye candies) errr, ahh: designs that are simply itching to be stitched. Good luck to everyone, and many thanks to Carrie Nelson, Martingale, and Moda for this fabulous giveaway to three lucky winners. I’ll certainly be keeping my fingers crossed.

    —Kelly Pilkinton on November 16, 2018
  • Love these pincushions! What a great gift idea for all my "stitchy" friends. I have only made wool pincushions but this is an awesome way to use up some of my scraps.

    —Jean Gilbertson on November 16, 2018
  • I usually give them as gifts or use them as bowl fillers to decorate.

    marie Beers on November 16, 2018
  • Although I haven’t made any pin cushions myself, I really enjoy using the pincushion my sister made for me. It is about 10 inches by 3 inches and made of wools. There is something gritty in it besides the poly-fill, so it has weight. I use it at the front edge of my sewing machine to "catch" all of the pins as I remove them from my work. And……….I love all the tiny-ness of your designs. I have just recently fallen in love with tiny blocks.

    —Judith A. Corwin on November 16, 2018
  • OMG – I love these – I collect pincushion patterns – I want to make them and put them all over my sewing room. I want this book – I also have been collecting mini charms and have tons. How exciting. I use pincushions and want to decorate with them. Please, please, please. Even if I do not win – I am buying this book. Yippeee. Love it.

    —Debra Ellis on November 16, 2018
  • I love Pincushions! I have a collection of old ones! I have made a big 😇 Pincushion that sits on top of an old industrial thread spool! This book looks fabulous, filled with great ideas! Such fun!

    —Melissa Diaz-Moresco on November 16, 2018
  • These are so fun! I have made a few pinnies…some are little chickens 🙂 I have a bunch of bonus half square triangles sitting here ready to make some of these patterns from Carrie. Thank you for the inspiration and the awesome giveaway!

    —Loris Mills on November 16, 2018
  • I love pin cushions! I have two I use all the time and the rest of my collection are all over my sewing room. I make a lot of them!

    —Sherry Jagels on November 16, 2018
  • Yes, I have made pin cushions and keep several by my sewing machine that I use regularly.

    —Linda on November 16, 2018

    —Fae Holin on November 16, 2018
  • I have never made a pincushion! Gasp! But I do have the book on order and a pile of scraps waiting to try. This looks like a wonderful book and I can’t wait to get mine.

    —Shirley on November 16, 2018
  • I have made a few pin cushions, cute ones like chickens and owls, both to use and as gifts.

    —Kathleen T on November 16, 2018
  • I have given a few pincushions away as gifts or as package tie-ons. I have two that I use regularly and two that are just for decoration in my sewing room. You never have enough pinnies!

    —Nell on November 16, 2018
  • I have both and we are doing a gift exchange of a pincusion at our Dec guild meeting. So much fun!

    —Louise M on November 16, 2018
  • I have not made pincushions before. I have used the classic red tomato cushion for years. It’s time to try one of the cute options here. They look quick to make.

    —Elaine Chamberlain on November 16, 2018
  • So many cute pincushions; hard to decide which one I like the best. I have made pincushions over the years and I have them sitting everywhere in my sewing room!

    —Sylvia L on November 16, 2018
  • OH what a beautiful book. I love pinnies. I have them all over in my sewing area. I love to see them, use them, and make them. Would love to be a winner!!

    —Carol Bejtlich on November 16, 2018
  • I have made pincushions before and gifted them to friends. Have made several of Carrie’s patterns. In fact she threatened to swipe one my pincushion in use. I was flattered but needed my pins!

    —Annette on November 16, 2018
  • Have made many pincushions, for decorative and for traditional use. Thanks for the opportunity to win this sweet giveaway !!!

    —Nancy J on November 16, 2018

    —Jacqueline Celestine on November 16, 2018
  • These look awesome! I have had pincushions on my list make for some time. Time to replace my mother’s tomato pin cushion plus I could come up with another use for them too.

    —Barbara Morse on November 16, 2018
  • I have made one, very lonely pincushion. It is attached to the thread catcher I made. It sits on my cutting table and stores pins for me within easy reach. I’d love this book so I could make some friends for my very lonely pincushion 🤣 👍👍

    —Paula on November 16, 2018
  • I’ve made quite a few pincushions, for gifts, for piling in a stack on my sewing table, and for actually putting pins and needles in. But Carrie’s cute pinnies sure raise the bar! Thanks for an awesome giveaway!

    —Molly on November 16, 2018
  • After making pincushions they are decorations….

    —Lynn on November 16, 2018
  • Just seeing all these pin cushions gives me a happy feeling. I’ve made some for myself and some to give away, both for pins and to just look cute.

    —Luanne on November 16, 2018
  • Mooi al die speldenkussentjes , zou er wel een van willen, gr Liesbeth

    Translation: Nice all those pincushions, would want one of them, gr Liesbeth

    —Liesbeth manders on November 16, 2018
  • I can’t remember ever making a pincushion, but I do have a couple of decorative ones I use for pins. So I suppose mine are both decorative and practical. Carrie’s look like they’d be fun to make and would be great gifts for, say, a hostess who sews or to donate to a quilt guild bazaar.

    —Jane on November 16, 2018
  • No one ever has enough pincushions! Carrie you’ve done it again!

    —Cindy Wilson on November 16, 2018
  • Have not made any pincushions but have been dreaming of doing so — these look so fun! I have always admired them…have antiques from many decades ago that are so fun to display and enjoy! Would love the chance to make some of these!

    —Kristie Smalligan on November 16, 2018
  • I have made many for myself, gifts and decorating. Your book looks like lots of fun!!

    —Jane Busby on November 16, 2018
  • I love Pincushions When I was a young child I would make my mother a pincushion every year for her Christmas present, why, who knows she didn’t sew – lol But I loved them and still do 🙂

    —Michelle C on November 16, 2018
  • I have attempted one pincushion in my lifetime, not a big success – I obviously need Carrie’s book so I can make something special for my sewing area – and having something that Carrie has made herself would be the cherry on the top !

    —Brenda on November 16, 2018
  • I belong to a women’s sewing group on the coast of Maine. We have a fundraiser every summer for scholarships for our high school students. By far the popular item we sell is a handmade pincushion sized pillow filled with balsam needles collected from our menbers’ back yards. Our designs vary from simple to complex, using fabric that reflects our small fishing and boating community. I can’t wait to get my hands on your book to share with the ladies!

    —Mary on November 16, 2018
  • I’ve amde a few pincushions but honestly I use them more as decoration thaan actual pincushions.

    —Hildy on November 16, 2018
  • I have made pin cushions for both use and decoration. Carrie’s pinnies are awesome and I’m sure my quilty friends would treasure them.

    —sam on November 16, 2018
  • I have not made pinnies but this makes me want to make lots of them. My daughter has made them but she had a problem going through security with the supplies to make some, seems security was interested in her bag of crushed walnut shells.

    mandy whalen on November 16, 2018
  • I think pincushions are adorable, but I don’t make very many. In fact, I have so many projects and kits to make, I can’t possibly get them all done. I would like to make some for gifts.

    —Karan Williams on November 16, 2018
  • Everything Carrie dreams up is appealing, large and small. I would love to win the book and be inspired to make some pin cushions. More likely to make them to use and give away than for decoration. Small is beautiful!

    —Donna on November 16, 2018
  • I have made a couple of pin cushions and used them for pins and decorations

    —Katherine M Collins on November 16, 2018

    —Georgia Anderson on November 16, 2018
  • I’ve only made one pincushion. It was a gift. These are so cute I want to make them all!

    —Jessica on November 16, 2018
  • I’ve used the old tomatoes for years,then in 1990 I made my first larger cushion, from a discarded quilt block, and put it in a small square basket. It’s way too poofy, I don’t use it anymore! Looking at these I need to pull it out and do some re-engineering! Now I have a cross stitch one made for me in my hand sewing box, and a tiny antique silver salt cellar with a velvet pincushion inserted! I think these are great projects for those evenings when I’m too pooped after work to pull out my machine, but want to do something with my hands…

    —Sharon Schipper on November 16, 2018
  • I made chicken ones years ago and gave them away as gifts. I wish I had made one for myself.

    —Margarette on November 16, 2018

    —Tiffanee Noack on November 16, 2018
  • I make and use my own pin cushions, not on display because they are so homely. My favorite pin cushion design is Doreen Speckman’s "chicken".
    I loved seeing the cute little cushions suitable for display. A great use for those little 3 inch blocks!

    —Cheri Bergeron on November 16, 2018
  • I have made pincushions before and I do use them to hold pins.

    —Suzanne Cooper on November 16, 2018

    —Denise Sanderson on November 16, 2018

    —Betty Liehr on November 16, 2018

    —Lewcrese Shields on November 16, 2018

    Joyce Finch on November 16, 2018
  • Yes, I have made pin cushions for myself to use and decoration. The ones for decoration are chick pin cushions.

    —Angela Little on November 16, 2018

    —Karen Higgins on November 16, 2018
  • I love pin cushions. I have a good sized collection but my favorite shape it is long and narrow. They fit at the base of your machine. So many cushions seem to be a bit top heavy but this shape never falls off the table. Love your book.

    —Susan Melgaard on November 16, 2018
  • I love pincushions, and have made and received quite a few cute ones as gifts! They are great! I have a Pinterest board called "Pinned Pincushions" where I store ideas! Yours are so cute – hope I win!

    —Kresti Lyddon on November 16, 2018
  • I have made a couple for practical use. I have also been given a few that I use for decoration in a bowl. The one with the three houses would make a cute housewarming gift! So excited to give some of these a try

  • These little pinnies are a work of art! The book sounds fascinating and the prize also is very enticing. I do make pin cushions and have given them as gifts but I am always intrigued by the different styles I see in stores, magazines, etc. This would be a fun little avenue to walk down trying some new techniques! Thank you.

  • I have made two pin cushions. One was a little Russian lady, the pins went into her "skirt" pin cushion area. The second was a rooster. I was in a class to make this chicken. I did something wrong with the pattern and mine came out as a "mini" chicken. Everyone wanted to know how I did it but honestly, I didn’t know where I screwed up on the original pattern so I couldn’t tell them what I did! I still have the mini chicken pin cushion which used to sit on top of my sewing machine but we moved 2 years ago and I don’t know where he is right now. The patterns in the book are darling and I’d love to try making some of them!

    —Jami Price on November 16, 2018

    —Barbara Dillingham Moore on November 16, 2018

    —Sheila on November 16, 2018
  • I’ve made a couple of pin cushions, one for myself and one for a friend. I made mine once I started sewing again and realized it was inconvenient to keep dipping into a small plastic box for pins. I’ve since decided I need another pincushion and this book is just the thing to give me inspiration!

    —Carol Bakaj on November 16, 2018
  • I have never made a pin cushion before. I never had the need to because I use my mom’s pincushion that she always used. Now I see them in a different light. I never thought of them as decorative pieces. What great little gifts they would make. Thank you so much for opening up a whole new craft for me.

    —Virginia Bronner on November 16, 2018

    —Carolynne Bodine on November 16, 2018

  • Have not made any pincushions but have been dreaming of doing so — these look so fun! I have always admired them…have antiques from many decades ago that are so fun to display and enjoy! Would love the chance to make some of these!

    —MoeWest on November 16, 2018
  • So cute! I love your colors and designs. I have made pincushions, but mostly for gifts. Your book would be so nice to have, I can tell there are more pincushions in my future 🙂 Question, though: Would using walnut shells in pincushions expose allergens to people who have nut allergies? Thanks for this really nice offer.

    —Barbara Dahl on November 16, 2018
  • I love pinnies and feel you can never have too many. I keep and use most of the ones I make, but have also gifted some to sewing friends. Would like to try my hand at using the small fabric pieces; mine pieces are usually larger and fewer. I also like to work with wool felt.

    —SandyMay on November 16, 2018
  • Love the idea of making pincushions from scraps. I have made some to use and give away. I think it would be cool to have a basketful to decorate my sewing room. Thank you for the ideas.

    —Ross-Marie on November 16, 2018
  • Love, love pin cushions!! I have many displayed on a shelf my Dad made. Makes me smile looking at them and knowing my Dad would be proud of how I have decorated his handiwork.

    —Barb Schneider on November 16, 2018
  • What a delightful idea. Place mats are the smallest thing I have ever tried. I am now motivated to try a pinnie with my big fat fingers thanks to this great chat on the web.

    —SherryG on November 16, 2018
  • I have never made a pincushion but am loving the ones in the book and would love to try making one. They are cute and functional.

    —Fran Claassens on November 16, 2018
  • I’ve made a couple of purely functional pincushions – but I love the idea of tucking little pips of color around my home!

    —Robin May on November 16, 2018
  • I’ve not made a pincushion, but am thinking about making some to use as gifts.

    —Barb on November 16, 2018
  • My sewing room is filled with pincushions I’ve made through the years. Since I made my first quilt in 1969, I’ve found it was a good project to use up small scraps. It’s a great remembrance of favorite fabrics from years past.

    —Kathy on November 16, 2018
  • I have made several "Chicken" Pincushions. I filled them with the walnut shells. This book looks like so much fun! I would love to win!!!

    —Rose on November 16, 2018
  • Pincushions are for pins? I love decorating with them. Looking forward to to this fantastic book.

    —Wendy M on November 16, 2018
  • I have made a few and have used them for both pins and decorations.

    —Carol M on November 16, 2018
  • Yes, I have made pin cushions in the past. I use them for holding pins. I hadn’t thought about decorating with them, but I just may in the future. Carrie’s are so colorful and I love her designs.

    —Jane on November 16, 2018
  • I have only made wool pincushions and have used the crushed walnut shells for the filling. Yours are beautiful! I’ve been making mini quilts and loving it! I’m also playing with hexies. I think I see a pincushion made with hexies!

    —Bernadette Duncan on November 16, 2018
  • I make pincushions. They make great gifts and fun decorating items.

    —Georgina on November 16, 2018
  • I love pincushions. I make them out of fabric and wool and xan never have enough of them. Some of rhem i use all the time and others are decorations. Some are old and some new. I love them all.

    —Natalie Rogers on November 16, 2018
  • I love making pincushions and use them for gifts and displays! Would be exciting to win one of the giveaways!

    —Tina W on November 16, 2018
  • I’ve made many pincushion– some for gifts, some for myself, but most "just because". They are quick to finish and I’ve never heard anyone critique the work in a gifted pincushion — they’re always welcome. Frankly, I like the feel of a weighted pincushion in my hand, whether filled with crushed buckwheat hulls or sand. There’s something meditative about that weight. There’s no such thing as too many pincushions.

    —Jay on November 16, 2018
  • I have not made pincushions, but I have a lot of mini scraps and now I have an idea of what I can do with them.

    —Cindy on November 16, 2018
  • I’ve made one pincushion before and would like to make more. Carrie’s designs are inspirational!!!

    —NickyH on November 16, 2018
  • I have not made pin cushions-although I have thought about it!

    —Lesley on November 16, 2018
  • I’ve made pincushions for gifts. Thusfar I’ve done wool & felt with the focus on embroidery. I’m intrigued at the patchwork approach. Very cute!

    —Suzanne Griffin on November 16, 2018
  • Carrie (and Rosie) have done it again – just when I think I will resolve to finish my UFO’s, out comes a fresh new idea – this time for something which is somewhat of an addiction of mine – making (and sharing) pincushions. I have a vintage cake stand in my sewing room piled with pincushions already and it will be fun to display some in a new manner, perhaps a shallow basket or large jar. Thanks for the fresh new patterns/color combinations!

    —Donna Barth on November 16, 2018
  • I haven’t made a pinnie before but I have a couple that I love that were given to me. They are definitely on my to do list!

    —Shirley Ratliff on November 16, 2018
  • I’ve made some teacup pincushions but not any pieced ones. Carrie’s little pincushions are so cute! Thanks for the giveaway!

    —Susan on November 16, 2018
  • I still have never made a pincushion! This book is the inspiration I need to change that.

    —LAVONNE on November 16, 2018
  • I’ve never made a pin cushion for myself and the ones I have were made for me by others. I think pin cushions are lovely gifts.

    —Sandy Dess on November 16, 2018
  • I love making pin cushions. I have made them from scraps from our opportunity quilts to give to chair people and those who sell a lot of ticket. One year was an Amish quilt so I used a black background and made tiny traditional blocks of colors. They were so cute. Another year we had 2″ pieced of 30s fabrics and I made hexies of the squares and made pin cushions. I keep a small pincushion in each of my sewing machine cases and also in my hand quilting kit and my applique kit. Never enough pin cushions. This book has so many really darling pin cushions. I love her philosophy of not worrying if they are perfect. Would love to have the book.

    —Diane Morrow on November 16, 2018
  • The most adorable pinnies I’ve seen.

    —Mandy Adams on November 16, 2018

    —Maggie Nichols on November 16, 2018
  • My favorite pincushion was a gift from one of my daughters a few years ago. I use it all the time but Carrie"s book inspires me to create a few for others.

    —Bette on November 16, 2018
  • I love pincushions – Thanks for offering this pinny giveaway. I usually make a set of pincushions for attendees at a small retreat we have in the spring. They are great "souvenirs" AND are fun to use for ornaments in December …

    —Nancy on November 16, 2018
  • I love making pincushions. I’ve made several for different purposes. I even made a basketful of tiny pyramid shaped ones to use as pattern weights.

    —Linda Flanders on November 16, 2018
  • I have only made one pincushion. It was a chicken. I liked doing it, I have walnut shells for making more, I have another pattern but for some reason have failed to make any more. I love these miniature blocks made into a pincushion. I can see several of them in a bowl on my coffee table. Art in a bowl.

    JaniceCarole Allen on November 16, 2018

    —Dee Spiker on November 16, 2018
  • I do love pincushions, but don’t recall ever having made one. I do have several cute pincushions made by a friend. I love that she uses crushed walnut shells, rather than batting to stuff them.

    —Sharon on November 16, 2018
  • I LOVE pincushions. They are adorable gathered together in a wooden bowl, a basket or even an old crockery kitchen bowl! And they are fabulous gifts. Please pick me!

    —Geri A on November 16, 2018

    —Teresa Block on November 16, 2018

    —beth d. on November 16, 2018
  • The only pin cushions I’ve made are filled with ‘sand’ and attached to a thread catcher that hangs over the edge of the table. But I need more – to take to
    guild meetings, and to spread around the various places in the house that I have overtaken with my sewing. I have heard various rumors that the sand SHARPENS the pins, or that it DULLS the pins. Which is right? Love Carrie’s pinnies!

    —JanG on November 16, 2018
  • Yes, I’ve made chicken pincushions that I actually use for pins.

    —Carol Gearey on November 16, 2018

    —Mary Beth McKelvey on November 16, 2018
  • I live these little pincushions, and this book is a perfect addition to anyone’s library. I both make and use to decorate. These little pincushions would be great for a mini sampler quilt. 😍

    —Marilynn on November 16, 2018
  • I have not made a pincusion before but I adore all the ones Carrie has made. They are so cute that I’m not sure I would use them for pins. I might just use them for decoration or give them as gifts.

    —Wendy on November 16, 2018

    —Karen Jackson on November 16, 2018
  • Years ago I made a pincushion/trash bag holder (all in one) to sit next to my sewing machine. I use it ALL the time. That is the only pincushion I’ve ever made. The pinnies in this book look adorable. Thanks for the chance to win.

    —Lerlene Nevaril on November 16, 2018
  • Yes I have made pin cushions and I do use them. Stationed strategically placed. These cute little quickies would be great for hand stitching on the couch at night.

  • The pinnies are adorable. I haven’t made one but I sure want to now.

    —Patricia on November 16, 2018
  • I have often made pennies – love how little fabric they take, and how quickly they work up. Mine are primarily decorative, but could be used if needed.

    —Ann Parke on November 16, 2018
  • Many years ago, I made a small, rectangular pin cushion, put a piece of Velcro on the back with the other piece on my sewing machine and always had it handy so I could easily find my pins when needed. A few years ago, my guild had a pin cushion exchange with another guild. I participated in this. The range of pin cushions was immense. Great exchange!

    —Roz Agulnik on November 16, 2018

    —Gina on November 16, 2018
  • I still have the first pincushion I made in about 1952. It was for my mother, two small red felt hearts sewn together with a buttonhole stitch using white thread and stuffed with cotton balls. When Mother passed away, I found it with her sewing notions. I think it’s time for me to make more…. precious gifts for friends. Would love to win this giveaway.

    —Katherine K Morvay on November 16, 2018

    —Rebecca K on November 16, 2018
  • Wow… any of these would be a fantastic gift for one of my friends… she’s pincushion collector and maker.

    Yes, I’ve made pincushions, usually not on my own, however. Some have been guild projects, guild exchanges, and once I participated in my Treadleon group’s pincushion exchange.

    I’ve developed an enjoyment of tiny… right now my project is 1/2 inch hexies so these little gems would carry me into another aspect of this.

    Thank you so much

  • It is so nice to know that there are other pincushion addicts!!!

    —Marva Gurley on November 16, 2018
  • The pincushions that I have made I use for both holding my pins and for decorations.

    —Trina on November 16, 2018
  • My grandmother would take an old tractor part or broken beautiful piece of class and stuff one area and cover it with cloth to make a pincushion. So pincushions have a special place in my heart and I make them for myself and for friends and family. Love the book and thanks for the chance to win.

    —Darliss Peabody on November 16, 2018
  • To me, a pinnie is a type of garment used in athletics. The word is short for pinafore. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pinafore

    As for pincushions — the patchwork kind are cute, but I am practical. I use three magnetic pincushions in my studio — one at the sewing machine, one at the design wall, and one at the cutting table.

    —nann on November 16, 2018
  • I never made pin cushions before. Don’t you think it’s about time? The book is beautiful. I want to make them all!

    —Anita Rohman on November 16, 2018
  • I have made many pin cushions in the past. Most of them are made with felt, a largish washer glued on the bottom inside, and blanket stitched together. They are so much fun. I switch them out and use them for pins. One sits beside my machine, one on my sewing table, and one beside my chair in the living room. I enjoy using them and I enjoy looking at them as well. I can’t wait to dive into this book and make them all, but I have to finish my quilt club gifts first. I made a bunch of Carrie’s Crazy Chicken pin Cushions a couple of years ago to get out of a sewing funk I got into and had so much fun using up all sorts of crazy scraps that I was right back into my usual fanatic quilter mood before I knew it.

    —Kathleen King on November 16, 2018

    Yours are like mini quilts.
    Hope to make some of them in the future

    —Annita Cormack on November 16, 2018
  • Love your pin cushions. I need these to use them and they are too cute to not I display them.

    —Donna on November 16, 2018
  • What is NOT to love about these "pinnies". Each one I looked at was a small jewel to love. Have only made three different sized owls that sit side by side on my entertainment center.

    —Donna Belisle on November 16, 2018
  • I’ve made one, simple pincushion before – attached to Velcro to fasten around my sewing machine

    —Frances Ball on November 16, 2018
  • Absolutely love these…have never tried pincushions before because of the small pieces, but these cuties make my fingers tingle as I mentally go through the scraps I have.

    —Sheila D on November 16, 2018

    —Marsha on November 16, 2018
  • So many neat pincushions. I like using them for holding different types of pins and for just enjoying their cuteness!

    —Estie on November 16, 2018
  • I have made a 3 tiered pin cushion and some chicken ones. I’ve collected more than I’ve made. One came from England with Lavender in it. Makes my sewing room smell so nice.

    —Mary L Dahlberg on November 16, 2018
  • Both, I love pincushions too. I’m not super good at making them but have made a few paper pieced pincushions. I gotta have somewhere to hold my pins! Hope I win.

    —Wendy Hansen on November 16, 2018
  • I have made many pincushions…I’ve given most of them away, but I still have a couple for decoration.

    Linda Frost on November 16, 2018

    —Barb Walsh on November 16, 2018
  • Love making pincushions (and collecting them). Some are functional, some decorative, but most are both. Especially enjoy making holiday-themed ones. "Pin Pals" looks like a great book!

    —Linda Medina on November 16, 2018
  • Have made several pincushions as gift. Always fun!

    Camilla Hunter on November 16, 2018

    —C Davis on November 16, 2018

    —Fran Anderson on November 16, 2018
  • I have only made one so far but now I have LOTS of incentive – thank you! The pin cushions I have are both used and displayed.

    —Denise S Holzer on November 16, 2018

  • I’ve made one pincushion out of one of my father-in-law’s ties. It was a cathedral window and I gave it to my daughter as a keepsake. I would like to try making more pincushions.

    Kristin on November 16, 2018
  • What cute pinnies – and what a generous give-away. I love to make pincushions and look forward to seeing Carrie’s book to give me more ideas.

    —Glenna C Denman on November 16, 2018
  • Great quick gift idea or stocking stuffer. Everyone needs a pincushion even if all you do is sew on buttons or fix hems that come undone. I laughed when I saw pinnies. I haven’t heard that term since I was a little girl.

    —Enid on November 16, 2018
  • No I have not ever made a pin cushion before but have always wanted to. All the small pieces are overwhelming when you sit down to start one as I just starting out in the wide wonderful quilting world. Your book would certainly reduce the hesitation when there are instructions and pictures to work with.

    —Linda Blewett on November 16, 2018
  • Wonderful idea. Never thought about making pinnies. Would love to get the book and try.

  • I love pincushions and have a collection of them…a flock of chickens, heart-shaped pinnies, scrap pinnies, and my favorite owl pinnie made by a quiltmate! Thanks for the chance to win a giveaway!

    Judie Harron on November 16, 2018
  • I have three pincushions on display by my sewing table, two I made. A chair, a flower pot, and a pinnie type made of childhood sheets. They make me smile every time I look at them. Those shown here are exquisite, like designer doll pillows. They could be housed on a miniature wood bench in a sewing room.

    —Audi on November 16, 2018
  • Can’t wait to try making pinnies. They are so pretty.

    —Carol Trautmann on November 16, 2018
  • I’ve made exactly one pincushion and use it both for holding pins and as a pattern weight. I definitely need this book because I have a LOT of crushed walnut shells left over.

    —Dixie on November 16, 2018
  • I LOVE to make pincushions, I use some of them and any of them for decor, and some I give away. I think yours are adorable am very inspired by the pictures from your book. Thanks for a chance to win your generous gift!!

    Synthia Noble on November 16, 2018
  • I’ve made two scrap pinnies before – no pattern, just randomly sewing! They turned out great and I’d love to make more! I use them as decoration, but I would love to make some that are useful as well. I just adore the Ohio Star and Bear Paw pinnies on the cover!

    —Kristin on November 16, 2018
  • I have never made a pincushion before but would love to make some especially from this beautiful fabric. Great gift idea for people who sew and quilt. I have a pincushion that is 25 years old and looks it but for whatever reason I have not made or bought another one.

    —carol Ball on November 16, 2018
  • I have made several pinnies, some with embroidered designs, dual use with flaps for my clips and space for my pins. I love to collect them, I’ve even received several as gifts.

    —Sherrie Holland on November 16, 2018

    —Virginia on November 16, 2018
  • I think they’re awesome. I have one in the works, but haven’t finished it yet. I use them a lot!

    —Nancy Bart on November 16, 2018

    —Chris Day on November 16, 2018
  • I have made a couple of pincushions and use them for both pins and decorating. I recently purchased one of those magnetic dish pin bowls and really don’t like it…I keep getting stabbed with the pins. Now I’m on a mission to make really cute pincushions and use them. The pinnies in this book are adorable!

Thank you for offering a chance to win your wonderful looking book and the pincushions to keep or share !

    every time I sew. The handmade ones are very special as they remind me of the
    friends who made them for me.

    —Joyce Husseini on November 16, 2018

    —Lynn on November 16, 2018
  • I have made pincushions from fabric to wool ones. I actually use them to hold puns. I like me them better than boxes or dishes because it is to easy to spill them on the floor in those kind of containers. Also when you go to pick up a pin you get multiples and you get stuck. Pincushions allow you to get one at a time, you don’t get stuck and the don’t come out of the cushion if they get dropped; plus they are decorative.

    Debra Freese on November 17, 2018

Now a quilt maker( 5o years later)I have many scrapes and Carrie has so many beautiful ideas. I have made my china doll faces into bean bag pin cushions using the walnut shells. Thanks Carrie.

    —Robin Medley on November 17, 2018

    —Carol Hargreaves on November 17, 2018

    —April Curry on November 17, 2018
  • Oh my gosh! these pinnies are so adorable. I have made quite a few myself, and would like to do more. I save any oddball block for future pinnies. I’ve also made some wool ones. I use them for decoration and for pins, fancy that! I plan on making a bunch for gifts in the New Year!

    —Susan Traynor on November 17, 2018
  • I started making pinnies when I happened upon one of Carrie’s pin cushion patterns. And like she said, you can’t just make one. I give them away and have started keeping one of each in my collection—no one has that many pins that they can all be used! HA! But I do use three or four of them to have at every spot I might need a pin. Carrie is a WONDER!

    —Pam on November 17, 2018

    —Lynette M Gross on November 17, 2018
  • OMG! I thought I was the only one addicted to pincushions! I’ve made probably 100 or more and keep looking for new ideas to add to my "collection" to give away as gifts and to even sell. It’s amazing how a simple pincushion can make someone smile and I enjoy hearing their memories of their mother or grandmothers and their experience with pincushions as they fondle the pincushion that I had made. One of my treasured keepsakes is a worn and tattered pincushion that was used by my mother- and it might have even belonged to her mother before that.

    I have almost every single book that Carrie has written and I’d love to have this one as well. Her instructions are great and the photos that go with them are very, very nice and inspiring.

    Thank you Carrie for telling the quilting world about wonderful "pinnies!"

    —Nancy on November 17, 2018
  • I haven’t made any yet, but have all the materials (well, I guess I can never have enough small snippets of fabric! I would love to try some of Carrie’s pinnies.

    —Karen in Ohio on November 17, 2018
  • I have never made a Pincushion before, but with this bundle of goodies, I would be well on my way to building a collection of them. Carrie’s work is just FABULOUS! Thank you for the chance to win.

    —Inger Martinson on November 17, 2018

    —Linda Webster on November 17, 2018
  • Yes! I make pincushions. I love the looks of pincushions. I have made several for craft fairs. They are origami called "Cathedral Windows". They require both folding and sewing. My two grown daughters love them too. Whenever I make something they like, I have to make it for them also. I like using my pincushions. A varied of patterns would be nice to have.

    —Carol on November 17, 2018

    —Anne on November 17, 2018
  • I’ve never made a pincushion before (like Carrie said, there’s that little fear of using very small scraps). But I want to try; I’d love to start my own little collection (just to look at, of course) and give some away as gifts! I love that they’re so quick to stitch; I thrive on a feeling of accomplishment!

  • Love making, using, and gifting pincushions! But always keep special ones just for decoration too!

    —Sandra Chin on November 17, 2018
  • I have made many pin cushions. I prefer the type that rests on a finger made with a two litter bottle cap and these are used to hold pins as I sew. But I also use pin cushion patterns for ornaments or combine several to piece a scrappy quilt top.

    —Carole Holmberg on November 17, 2018
  • What a beautiful way to use up scrapes. Pinnies from Heaven. Love them !

    —kerry colson on November 17, 2018
  • I have made pincushions! Some have pins, but I don’t necessarily use them, some have been given away for swaps and some used for guild boutique donations. Looks like a great book!

    —Susan Ikin on November 18, 2018
  • I have only made 3 pincushions before. I want to make many more. The ones I have made were intended to be used but once I finished them they were just too cute to stick a bunch of pins in (Lol). So now they decorate my stand with no more than 3 decorative pins in them so the design doesn’t get lost with pins. Winning this giveaway would be great. Not only would I get a autographed copy of Pin Pals but I’ll also get more pincushions to add to my stand. Beautiful!!!

    —Jen B on November 19, 2018
  • I’m obsessed by pin cushions – they can be so stinking cute! I am generally a practical person so the fact that I can only use one at a time by each machine, or arm chair or space where I create doesn’t fit too well with my obsession. I find myself making one every couple of weeks and smiling the entire time.

    —Paula on November 20, 2018
  • I have made a few pin cushions in the past. And, just this past week at a quilting retreat we had a mystery project which turned out to be a pin cushion.

    —Donna W on November 20, 2018
  • I love making pin cushions! It is the best way to use scraps that aren’t big enough to go in a quilt. When I make a quilt to give, I always make myself a pin cushion or two with the scraps as a reminder of the fabrics, and of the blocks I used.
    I add a mix of walnut shells (for weight), thread clipping and tiny bits of fabric, so nothing is wasted.

    —Kim Mcwhorter on November 20, 2018

    —Susan Stanton on November 20, 2018
  • I’m very new to the world of quilting. I haven’t made any pincushions yet, but they’d be a wonderful way to experiment with quilting patterns on a small scale, to see how I like the finished look. My first thought of what to do with an abundance of cute pincushions would be a mobile, by color, by pattern, or by age group (like a baby’s room). The options are endless. I look forward to making my first pincushion and seeing how addicted I become. Thx

    —Nora on November 20, 2018
  • I haven’t made a pin cushion yet but I love the way you can put so much detail into them. I shall definitely add them to my list.

The complexity of the pattern increased with student’s experience and ambition. Would have loved to have your colorful pincushions to stimulate interest. I could see making some of these as ornaments and sachets for gifts.

    What is awesome is you learn different sewing and quilting skills along the way !

    I’m sure my little daughter would love to join me as we enter the world of pinnies and quilting together!
