I have an obsession with pincushions…

I'm not the only one, right?Β 

Every time I have a new fabric line coming out I start thinking about what the perfect pincushion would be. For my Bee's Life collection I came up with 2 ideas: a flower or a honeypot!

I did a quick search on Pinterest and found a free pattern by Anna Maria Horner from AllPeopleQuilt.com.

FUN FACT: When I was just getting started in art licensing Anna Maria and I had booths next to each other at SURTEX – for one or two years, it was so long ago I can't remember! I do remember that she was such a sweet, vibrant and fun person that I was thrilled to discover this cute pattern is one of hers! (Wonder if she remembers me??)

It's not a pincushion for those with limited space as you can tell from the photo where I have it in the palm of my hands but it's so cute! It's both decoration and pincushion in one.

If you try it and share on social media – be sure to tag me – I'd love to see the fabrics you choose!
