Teeny Tiny Valentines Day Pincushions

“If there ever comes a day
when we can’t be together,
Keep me in your heart,
I’ll stay there forever.”

-Winnie-the-Pooh to Piglet-

journal entry:

Two inches.  That is as big as these little pincushions grow.  I made a pattern out of a scrap of card stock and cut the tops out of pink chenille and the backs out of various gray and black prints. I sewed a button in the middle of each and wrapped ribbon around until it came back to the center.  I added some fun pins from my pin jar and a tag attached with a pink safety pin.  I filled the pincushions with poly pellets.  They are soft and squishy.  It only took an hour to make several and required only a tiny bit of fabric.  I gave them to people for Valentines Day who immediately said

“Oooohhhhh . . . it’s a teeny tiny pincushion !”

Little people who saw them just wanted to stick each other with the pins.

“It’s the thought that counts.  But,

if it can’t be eaten . . . at least make it soft.”
