New Pincushions



It's time to replace some pincushions, so from Kathleen Tracy's new book, The Civil War Sewing Circle I made the Pillow Pincushion.  I also made two Pointer Fingers.

I just received my Civil War Sewing Circle book and after seeing your pincushions, I'm inspired to make a few for myself and friends. It looks like a good way to use up some of my Civil War scraps. And the finger pointers. How cute are they?
