How awesome is that! Your pincushion is super cute Connie and I’m so happy to hear that you are seeing some traffic from it. Yay!!
The first pattern and the second pattern are the same.
I wanted to make the kitty lat pincushion but did not see the pattern pieces or templates mentioned in the first sentence of the instructions.
You can click on any pincushion title and a new window will open with the tutorial/pattern.

How can a person purchase this book ?
There is no book to purchase. Each pattern is made by a different designer.
I am looking for a cell phone embroidery pincushion pattern. Do you know where I can find it?
I am looking for a pin cushion made from denim and looks like overalls.Any ideas?
Thanks for your note Gerlinde. There are so many patterns on this list but I do not recall one made with denim overalls. Perhaps you will be interested in one of the other designs.

I have received many requests for this post to be turned into a book for purchase but right now it is only offered online.
