While sewing my new skirt, I noticed that I really need a new (and smaller!) pin cushion. I found a free tutorial for this pin cushion on ravelry. It looks great! I'm going to search my stash for some nice fabric and some matching yarn. I'm not sure whether I'm going to knit or crochet the middle piece, since I'm normally more into knitting... I'll let you know.
This is a picture of Tatiana Di Maio's pin cushion. She is the designer of the pattern, which you can find here on ravelry.
