I love those simple projects that can be completed in 30 minutes or less, and this pincushion from Heather Bailey falls into that category. Go over to Heather's beautiful website to get a free pdf pattern with easy-to-follow instructions. I made one small change, and that was to bring both ends of the ribbon out on the same side (not sure how I managed to do that, it just happened, so I ran with it!), and I threaded the ribbon through the button so I wouldn't have to sew the button on. Too bad I didn't have any fancy hatpins to dress up my photo!
